Windows Domain creation / joining script

3 posts in this topic

Hi Guys. This is the first GUI application and AutoIt script I have ever created. That being said, I am having some trouble and hope someone can shed some light on my problem. I have spent too much time (as a newbie) trying to get it done myself already.

The script portion that works:

It comes pre-compiled with 9 domain name to choose from plus the option to type in your own custom domain name (this part does not work and if enabled breaks the entire script). After that you must decide if you need to create a new domain (new AD Domain), join a domain as a domain controller, or just join the domain as a member server. At the very end you have to submit the logon and password of the user that has permissions (OPer, Dom Admin, etc). Finally it does a check on the domain name to see if DNS/networking is setup correctly.

Thanks in advance for any help!

I haven't tried your script or spent much time studying it so I don't know what the problem is, but you are using $domainname and $password for 2 things at once. You should change the variable names so that the input boxes have different variable names to the strings you are reading from them.


Serial port communications UDF Includes functions for binary transmission and reception.printing UDF Useful for graphs, forms, labels, reports etc.Add User Call Tips to SciTE for functions in UDFs not included with AutoIt and for your own scripts.Functions with parameters in OnEvent mode and for Hot Keys One function replaces GuiSetOnEvent, GuiCtrlSetOnEvent and HotKeySet.UDF IsConnected2 for notification of status of connected state of many urls or IPs, without slowing the script.

I was considering doing that, but that way worked so I figured it was just replacing the value similar to &domainname would do in C/C++. I guess that's not the case but it works fine non-the-less. I would have said that I am reading the value wrong for the text string but it works fine in my other scripts. I have even used the same framework here that I created to implement MS Clustering scripts with no problems. However, in those cases I do not have radio buttons; just text.

Thanks again for any assistance... I just can't seem to figure it out and I could just take out the option, or the radio buttons but at this point I just have to understand "why".

Thanks!
