You probably should use GetComputerDomain() instead of GetCurrentDomain(). The one you used returned the domain of the currently logged in user instead of domain the computer joined to.

The script was meant to show the use of GetCuttentDomain. I have entered a separate script for GetComputerDomain. Thanks for the heads up!
