Is it possible to set up pc to join domain, then ghost it to many pc.

Is there any side effect for both original pc and all ghost pc?

do you have a w2k8+ server available? If so you could use WDS to deploy, if you have r2 available you can multicast the deploys for faster deploys. – tony roth Dec 2 '10 at 15:41

Not feasible. Ghost should have a functionality to join upon creation. But if you ghost a working integrated computer they would share the same active directory identity- with disastrous side effects. First one to renew AD password would throw the others out.
