Exceptions

Remarks

The return value of the GetComputerDomain method is a Domain object representing the domain to which the computer running the application is joined. This return value is independent of the domain credentials under which the application is run. This method will retrieve the computer's domain regardless of the trusted account domain credentials it is run under. To retrieve the Domain object that represents the domain corresponding to the user credentials in effect for the security context under which the application is running, use the GetCurrentDomain method instead.
