Move a workstation or member server to a new domain.
Syntax NETDOM MOVE machine /Domain:domain [/OU:ou_path] [/UserD:user] [/PasswordD:[password | *]] [/UserO:user] [/PasswordO:[password | *]] [/UserF:user] [/PasswordF:[password | *]] [/REBoot[:Time_in_seconds]] [/SecurePasswordPrompt] Key: machine The name of the workstation or member server to be moved. /Domain The domain which the machine should be moved. Specify a particular domain controller by entering /Domain:domain\dc. If a domain controller is specified, you can also include the user's domain. For example: /UserD:domain\user /UserD User account used to make the connection with the Domain specified by the /Domain argument /PasswordD Password of the user account specified By /UserD. Specifying a * will prompt for the password. /UserO User account used to make the connection with the Machine to be moved /PasswordO Password of the user account specified By /UserO. Specifying a * will prompt for the password. /UserF User account used to make the connection with the machine's former domain (with which the machine had been a member before the move). Needed to disable the old machine account. /PasswordF Password of the user account specified by /UserF. Specifying a * will prompt for the password. /OU Organizational unit under which to create the machine account. This must be a fully qualified RFC 1779 DN for the OU. If not specified, the account will be created under the default organization unit for machine objects for that domain. /REBoot Shutdown and automatically reboot the machine after the Join has completed. The number of seconds before automatic shutdown can also be provided. Default = 30 seconds /SecurePasswordPrompt Use secure credentials popup to specify credentials. This option should be used when smartcard credentials need to be specified. This option is only in effect when the password value is supplied as *
When moving a machine to a new domain, the old computer account in the former domain is not deleted. If credentials are supplied for the former domain, the old computer account will be disabled.
Moving a machine to a new domain will create an AD domain account for the machine if one does not already exist on the new domain.
Netdom options can be abbreviated to just the UPPER case letters, e.g. /PasswordD can be supplied as just /PD
