JSI Tip 5014. Windows XP unattended setup does not join the domain specified?

If your unattended answer file contains an encrypted domain administrator password, as in:

\[Identification\]
JoinDomain=YourDomain
DomainAdmin= installer
EncryptedDomainAdminPassword=d85774cf671a9947aad3b435b51404eebaac3929fabc9e6dcd32421ba94a84d4

the computer will fail to join YourDomain.

Unfortunately, network setup does NOT support the EncryptedDomainAdminPassword keyword.

To workaround this feature, use a plain text password with the DomainAdminPassword keyword.
