    Hi, how can you join a W2K/W2K3 domain with MCE? Thanks…

  2. Dave Glover says:

    The only way I know of is at installation time when you are given an option to join a domain. If you don’t take this option at setup time then the system effectively becomes a Windows XP Home Edition based installation which does not include domain support… I also believe there may be a downside of putting a MCE system in to a domain if you want to use an MCE extender which I’ve been told relies on Fast User Switch only available if the machine is not in a domain. I’ve not researched this issue any further as I don’t have an MCE Extender (yet)…
