Netdom.exe Cannot Join a Windows XP Professional-Based Computer to a Domain (Q294355)

When you use the Netdom.exe utility to join a Windows XP Professional-based computer to a domain, you may receive the following error message:

The specified network password is not correct.
The command failed to complete successfully.

This problem occurs because, by default you can only successfully run this command if you run it locally on the workstation.

To resolve this problem, run the command on the workstation for the netdom join command to be successful (by default, local administrative access is not limited). Another alternative is to disable the restriction to only allow guest access when connecting from the network. To do this, you need to modify the Forceguest registry value.
