Adding a PC to the CAMPUS domain

All UVM Employees can execute these steps on their UVM-owned computers, if they have Administrator rights on the PC they wish to join to the CAMPUS domain. At this time, ETS does not recommend joining Apple computers to the CAMPUS domain, due to problems with the stability of the sync operation.

Note: Computers purchased at the Depot should already be domain joined, unless the purchase order specifies not to join the computer.

How to join a Windows PC to the UVM CAMPUS domain:

  1. On Windows 7 or 8.1: Click the Start button, right-click on Computer, select Properties.
    Windows 8: Press the Windows key on the keyboard, type “computer”, right-click on Computer in the search results, select Properties.
    Windows 10: Click the search box on the taskbar, type “system”, select System (Control Panel) in the search results.
  2. In the System window that appears, click the Change Settings button.
  3. In System Properties window, make sure the Computer Name tab is selected, then click the Change button.
  4. Select the Domain option, then type in the domain:
    Then click OK.
  5. You should now be asked to enter your credentials. Make sure to format this correctly. If your NetID is jshmoe, you would want to enter:
    Username: campus\jshmoe
    Password: ************  [your NetID password]
  6. If you are prompted to restart your computer, do so.

It is recommended you log out immediately once you’ve completed this process, then log in with your NetID and password.
