  • computer accounts

    i am currently going through the 70-270 training it states before you join an xp machine to the domain you need to create a computer account before the installation.

    I dont understand why this would be necessary as when you join the machine to the domain this is automatically created within the active directory.

    I would be interested in seeing what the opinions are on this subject.

    If a computer account is created in advance it can be placed in an OU and subject to group policies etc from the beginning.
    If you create one when you join the domain, it will go in the computers container so only domain level policies will apply
