  • Which lab are you referring too?  When you state "restart the client", are you shutting down the virtual machine or just restarting the OS?  Sometimes sutting down the virtual machine disgards any changes made during the virtual session therefore your domain changes will not get saved.

  • Are you being prompted to enter in Domain credentials when joining it to the domain? If not, then it's not really joining.
