how to change a workgrou to a domain

If you are in a network enviroment and here already exist a domain controller (other server)in network properties change join to a workgroup to join to domain. Here type domain name.
You have two choices:
-if you logon on to your computer with local admin account, before make this change Domain Admin must add computer name in domain.
-if you logon to this computer with domain admin account, after change workgroup to domain, you can use <create computer account in domain> options and type thename and password of the domain admin.
After restart your computer will be a domain member.
If you are a standalone user without a network connections you can't use these settings.
If you are in a network but you don't have a domain controller and you want to make this computer domain controller in wizard installation (new/fresh install) you must chose Domain controller install options.
