Domain Join Debug Log

  • Open the file C:\WINDOWS\Debug\NetSetup.log.
  • Go to the very bottom of the file and find the last “NetpDoDomainJoin: status:”
  • If it is not 0x0, then the domain join failed and the code listed instead of 0x0 is the reason it failed.
  • Now, look at each previous line in the file until you come across the last line in the file that returned the same failure code as your Domain Join.
  • You have found the step of the domain join that failed and the reason it failed.
