I requested helpdesk my VM computer name to be added to the domain. after I run the SystemInfo command in the command line, I get WORKGROUP instead of the desired domain name. Help desk insist that they have added to the domain because they could ping to my computer. How do I make sure that my VM (virtual machine) machine was added to the desired domain name???

Please help.

They can ping because of netbios. It's not joined to the domain. Double check by running sysdm.cpl clicking change, and then checking the domain settings.
