  • automate joining AD domain (XP)? Possible?

    I posted this in the OS forum and thought I'd try here.

    My client currnently has about 2500 desktops (mostly XP pro) and about 50 NT 4.0 domains. They are finally upgrading their architecture and we will be moving to WIN 2003 AD in the next few months. We already have and AD domain at their Corporate HQ and all 50 NT domains will become part of this domain. My question is this. Is there anyway to automate the XP PC"s to join the existing WIN 2003 AD domain. I know we can't script because how could we run an automated script if we weren't part of a domain to logon to and run it. Right?
    I'm pretty much expecting having to touch every PC manually but since there are a lot of migration tool and tricks, I thought I'd see if there was something out there I wasn't aware of.
