The installation life cycle stage fails when you deploy an application on a Windows virtual machine configured to join a domain during deployment.


The Join Domain installation life cycle stage fails during deployment.


The domain name begins with darwin.

This is also a known issue in the Microsoft SQL Server installation program.


  • Rename the domain without using darwin as the prefix.
  • Create or update a Windows template.
    1. Name the bootstrap service account something other than darwin.
    2. Configure the service to run as that account.
