800xA 5.1 new stations integration
I have an 800xA system that is already running and I need to add two new operators workstations.
My question is, can I start the NPT normally using local users (Installer and Service users) off-site and then add them after the NPT to the Domain Controllers at the site to perform deployment? Will that be an issue?

A LOT is supposed to be done from
the final install/service accounts.
Change of service account is not officially documented.
I'm not saying it will work, but maybe a clone of the DC can be used to install new clients?
Before 6.0, cloning can often be used to speed up installation (the SPDC check for Unique SID is just bollo**s if you ask me, a new SID can often be generated by tools) - just make sure the HW is compatible, change IP and hostname after loading up a new clone. If the source computer has already been added to the system, remove the system registry key and OperateITTemp/Data folders before adding the new cloned computer).
