    Users accounts should be allowed to join up to 10 workstations to a domain by default. Have you changed the policy for this?

    Why not just add the users workstation to the domain using your admin account? That will quickly get the user up and running

      What i am understand is you created a domain user account for the new user joined in your company and you try to add his computer in to the domain with his newly created user account .

      The user you are created is a member of domain users, The domain users doesn't have permissions to add the computer in to domain. please try to add the system in to domain using your domain administrator account.

        sysvenka is right, you must have a user associated with Administrator (on the ou or on the domain.) in order to join a comp to the domain.
        if that doesnt work you can try something else.
        you can add manually the computer account in the AD and then join the computer.
        furthermore, assure that your DNS, IP and Subnet are correct.
