Join a domain in Server Core

If you are running a system with Windows Server Core, then you probably, but maybe not, have a domain that you will want to join your server to. To join a domain, run this command:
netdom join [hostname] /domain:[domain name] /userd:[user name] /passwordd:*
The username you enter should be that of a user who has administrator privileges on the domain in question; normal users do not have the power to add computers to the domain, administrators do. If you want you can enter in your password, but if you use the asterisk (*) instead then you will be prompted to enter a password and so will not have to make your password visible.
