How to join a PC running Windows to the UVM CAMPUS domain:
All UVM faculty and staff can execute these steps on their UVM-owned office computers, if they have Administrator rights on the PC they wish to join to the CAMPUS domain. At this time, ETS does not recommend joining Macintosh computers to the CAMPUS domain, due problems with the stability of the sync operation.
Computers purchased at the Depot should be already domain joined, unless the purchase order specifies NOT to join the computer.
To ensure that any new computer is joined to the CAMPUS domain, ETS recommends that the user, who will use the UVM-owned computer, should spend about 15 minutes at the Computer Depot clinic after picking up or taking delivery of the new computer to check that these settings are in place, and that the user’s netid is in the local administrator group for the computer.
