Hi everybody

I want to make a configuration which can add a computer in a Domain.
I downloaded a xComputerManagement Module and I want to know if somebody has an example of configuration to add a computer in a domain.

Not sure what are you looking for, but, check the SAMPLES on the documentation.

Thank's for your help.

I have some errors and not able to fix them.

After running this configuration on my pull server to create the Mof:

$ConfigData = @{
    AllNodes = @(
            NodeName                    = '*'
            PSDscAllowPlainTextPassword = $True
            NodeName     = 'QFRSPVMSRVQLF'
            DomainName   = 'mydomain'

Configuration SimpleExampleWithCredentials {

    Import-DscResource -Module xComputerManagement

    Node $AllNodes.NodeName {
        xComputer DomainJoin {
            Name       = $Node.NodeName
            DomainName = $Node.DomainName
            Credential = $DomainCredentials

SimpleExampleWithCredentials -ConfigurationData $ConfigData -DomainCredential (Get-Credential)

and run my LCM, i got this error:

Job {6B9A2D69-7118-11E7-80D0-00155DA5C308} : 
This event indicates that failure happens when LCM is processing the configuration. Error Id is 0x1. Error Detail is The SendConfigurationApply function did not succeed..

You need to add -Domain as a param.
