How do I join a computer to a domain in Directory and Resource Administrator without providing credentials?
Can Assistant Admins join computers to a domain in DRA without having to supply group or account credentials in the computer creation wizard?
Directory and Resource Administrator 7.x

By default, Directory and Resource Administrator (DRA) selects the Domain Admins group for adding computers to a domain in the computer creation wizard. Aside from this default selection, DRA does not provide a way to bypass the group or account entry in the wizard. Native tools (ADU&C) also require entry of group or account credentials to join a computer to a domain. However, the NetIQ Knowledge Depot contains a script which automatically sets the group for joining the computer in a Windows 2000 domain to a pre-determined, specific group. Search for the script ComputerJoin.vbs under Trigger & Policy Scripts at:
