When using Workstation Updater to join a workstation from a Workgroup to a Domain, the following error occurs:
"Error: Joining workstation <name or IP address> to domain <Domain> failed. Error Code: 2. Detail: The system cannot find the file specified"
In the 'Specify Target Domain to Join' window of the Workstation Updater tool, the target domain name, domain controller, and OU (organizational unit) must be specified. If the container chosen is not an OU (the default Computers container is not an OU), the task will fail with the above mentioned error. This error is returned by the command-line tool netdom (Windows Domain Manager), which NDS Migrator uses to add a workstation to a domain.
NDS Migrator should not allow for the selection of a container other than an OU, and a defect has been logged regarding this issue.
Select an OU as the destination container.

Waiting for a fix in a future release of the NDS Migrator product.
