Active Directory users not created when Windows 10 workstation joined to domain

Eric Shearer 20 Reputation points

I have a new windows 10 workstation. Configured local user account with Admin privileges. Set DNS to point to AD Server. Joined Domain and rebooted. No builtin or domain specific users created on the workstation and unable to remote desktop connect to workstation after joining the domain.

I've found several GPOs that were broken and suspect that perhaps one of them controls the behavior of the workstation joining the domain. How do I determine if my Group Policy is correctly configured so that a workstation joining the domain allows users to log into the machine?

    No builtin or domain specific users created on the workstation

    This does not happen by default. You'll need to add the domain user to the local groups (by some means) as needed.
