Joining a domain

When I wrote the how-to a few months ago, I forgot to jot down how to join the domain in both Windows 10 and from the command line.

To join an existing domain from Windows 10:

Right click on the Start button
Choose System from the pop up menu
Choose Advanced System Settings from the menu on the left
Choose the Computer Name tab
Click Change
Click Domain, and follow the prompts to enter your username and password

From the command line, for example, from a new test VM:

Open an elevated command prompt, and then type
netdom join machinenamegoeshere /domain:domainnamegoeshere
