Powershell Add-Computer error when executed remotely.


When you execute the PowerShell command: “Add-Computer -DomainName “contoso.com” -Credential $domainjoinuser -Restart” remotely or in a non-interactive environment you may get the following error:

The root of the problem is (given that your password is correct) when running things interactively the domain is pre-appended and as such you only need to provide the user. But in a non-interactive environment, the domain is not known as such it’s a very simple fix, make sure you either include the short domain names like “contoso\DMAdmin” or the full FQDN “[email protected]. The error occurred for me by running an Azure custom script which called a PowerShell script non-interactively.
