The Join Domain activity joins a Windows computer to a domain.
If the computer is already a member of a domain, this activity completes without modifying
the computer. Joining a domain requires a username and password. This user must have domain
administration privileges or privileges to join a computer to the domain.
This activity replaces a Powershell activity by the same name
available in releases prior to Geneva. If you have a workflow created in a previous version
that uses the deprecated activity, your workflow will continue to work normally after
upgrading to Geneva. However, all new workflows must use the custom version of this
activity. This activity was built with the Powershell activity designer
, which gives workflow administrators the ability to store input and output variables in
Table 1. Join Domain input variables
||Hostname or IP address of the Windows server that is
joining the domain.
||Name of the domain to join.
||The name of a user who has domain administration privileges or privileges to
join a computer to the domain.
||The password for the user who has domain administration privileges or
privileges to join a computer to the domain.
Table 2. Join Domain output variables
||Either success or
||The executionResult.errorMessages from the Activity designer parsing sources. If this variable is not null, the operation has failed.
Table 3. Join Domain conditions
||The activity succeeded in joining the computer to the domain.
||The activity failed to join the computer to the domain.
