      If he is trying to join a computer to the domain, he’s going to need administrator priviledges for that domain. You can make his user account a member of that domain admin group just long enought for him to complete the transaction, then remove his membership. No passwords need be disclosed.

        Enterprise Admin is overkill..he needs domain admin rights

        Enterprise Admin is only needed when making changes to the AD schema or to the forest root domain, but simply creating a child domain of an existing non-root romain requires domain admin rights. There is no other way around it and whomever dicates your corporate policies regarding giving out domain admin rights should review his/her knowledge of AD because people won’t be able to get work done otherwise. This can be a temporary assignment of rights for the purpose of joining a child domain, but like I said, there is no other way around this.
