If a computer is running Windows Vista Home Premium, you cannot join the computer to a domain.


This behavior occurs because Windows Vista Home Premium does not support a scenario where you join a computer to a domain. Windows Vista Home Premium is designed as the foundation for a home entertainment system.


This behavior is by design.
