Need to push or setup rdp to and pc's to domain

user160605 asked:

I have about 8 PCs and I need to add them to the domain but I am out of the office for a few weeks. I would need to remote into these computers that I know. How can I RDP into a computer that is not on my domain though? I could have users download teamviewer or something but is there any programs I could use to push RDP to remote PCs?

I`m using Windows Server 2003.
Is there some way I can do this if I know the computers’ name or IP-address?

My answer:


You just connect directly to its name or IP address and log on with a local account.

Of course, if all you are doing is joining the computers to a domain, you could just skip the remote desktop junk and use netdom join.
