🖥️ How do you join a Windows 11 computer in an Active-Directory domain?

In this blog, I explain how to join a Windows 11 computer in an Active-Directory domain.

You can add any Windows machine to an Active-Directory domain. In this article you can find the activation to realize a domain join yourself.

If you host servers, applications, printers and software in Microsoft Azure, integrated into Azure AD then you may no longer have a need for an Active-Directory environment. In a previous blog, I also wrote how to add devices without an Active-Directory environment without being part of Active-Directory. 

Make sure your Windows 11 computer is connected to the domain controllers

Before you can add your Windows-11 computer to the domain, it is necessary for this computer to have a direct connection to the domain controllers. In addition, it is also necessary for the computer to be able to "resolve" the domain's DNS name.
