We have implemented MDT and it is working fine. We have multiple child domains in our forest. The default parent domain is populated in the Join domain field.

Would it be possible to add drop down list to be able to select a domain to join?

    Hi,

    We can't add drop down list to select a domain to join.

    Perhaps we have learned how to add drop down list to select a domain Ou to join according to the link: https://scriptimus.wordpress.com/2013/02/11/mdt-2012-domainous-list/

    This achieves the goal by edit customsettings.ini. But this is a solution that already offers us in the official Microsoft documentation. And there no message about joins different domain. For more details:

    Maybe you can have other ways to join a different domain, but I haven't used it myself and don't know if it's possible. Here is the link:

    Hi Rick,

    The UDI Designer can offer us a method to add drop down list to be able to select a domain to join. If we want to create a UDI Task Sequence, we need integrate MDT with CM.

    Click Start, Under All Programs, Expand Microsoft Deployment Toolkit and then start UDI Wizard Designer Run as administrator.

    The Computer Page offered the domain join list customize template.
