Name the Systems and Join to Windows Domain

We are joining the Storage Spaces cluster to a Windows Domain.  Join every cluster node to your domain and rename the nodes to match your IT standard naming scheme.

This is done in the standard Windows methodology via the Server Manager GUI. The PowerShell equivalent is provided below. This must be done on both nodes.

KB-18-1

$UserName = "administrator"

$SecurePassword = "YourPassword" | ConvertTo-SecureString -AsPlainText -Force

$credential = New-Object System.Management.Automation.PSCredential -ArgumentList $UserName, $SecurePassword

Add-Computer -computername <nodename> -domainname <domain> -credential $credential –Restart

All nodes will have to be rebooted.

Note: This step may already be done from the initial installation from the Quick Start Guide.
