Ummm. It's not clear if you're saying that your code doesn't
work, or asking for general advice, or what? I'm not in a
position to have my machine join a domain or workgroup, but
you seem to have got most things in place already. The only
thing I would expect to have to change is this last line:

> 	c = wmi.WMI()
> 	d = c.Win32_ComputerSystem
> 	d.JoinDomainOrWorkGroup(None, 3, "mydom", "mydompw", r"admin\\mydom")

because the d is only a WMI *class*, not a WMI *instance*,
so doesn't refer as it should to your computer system but
to the class of computer systems. Try something like this (untested):

<code>
import wmi

c = wmi.WMI ()
for d in c.Win32_ComputerSystem ():
  d.JoinDomainOrWorkGroup(None, 3, "mydom", "mydompw", r"admin\\mydom")

</code>
