    I have a very basic question and is as follows. I know how to create a domain account in Active Directory Users and Computers, but I’m not quite sure how to proceed.

    Since we are in AD and are using GPO, should I, upon joining a computer to a domain, go to Control PanelUser Accounts create the newly created account there? Or can the newly created user just log in to that machine and that’s that?

    Please be as verbose as possible, the addition of documentation, URLs on this basic topic would also be appreciated (if even needed).

    The practice used to be to create the newly created account on the workstations as well and then choose if this will be a limited, power user or an admin account.

    PS: I wasn’t entirely sure if the AD forum is the correct one or should I be posting this under client OSs. Please move it as needed.
