Joining Windows 7 To Server 2008 Domain


Recommended Posts

Hi, I am using the below script trying to join a machine to the domain. It seems to fail because I specify the OU container which the machine is to go into. If I leave it out it joins to the default Computers container fine, but the problem is I need it to go to a specific OU. It returns me an error number 2 which I googled to find out means FILE_NOT_FOUND. Any ideas folks? TIA.
