Hi guys,
Should It be part of my job to join computers to the domain, as I am working as IT support?
Your answer would be highly appreciated.

Normally I would say yes. Does your Supervisor consider it part of your job? What does your job description say?

My job description doesn't mention these things, but in my previouse company it is part of my job.

If you are happy to have this job, stop being picky over a job description If not, look for another job.

A job drescription defines and outlines the need & business logics of having such position within the organization . It does not define what you can expect yourself to do and nothing else.

I suppose it depends on how your company breaks up IT responsibility. In mine, a handful of Windows administrators reserve that responsibility.

I agree with Razor2.3,

I.T. responsibilities can be very fragmented depending on company size, data sensitivity or even due to micromanagement.

To be given the ability to create / maintain user groups in my opinion is a high level I.T. responsibility.

On one hand I would feel privileged being given the responsibility, on the other, I would ask if am I paid enough for the accountability.

Job descriptions don't mean much these days as there is usually a clause that indicates that as a condition of employment that duties include tasks nominated by the employers representative be followed within reason.

... If you are concerned broach it with your employer.

... If you can't be bothered putting in the extra mile there are probably many willing and able.

Thank you upstandingnetizen, for your advices, Actually IT and computers is my hobbie! and I work with computers since I was a kid, I have MCP, MCTS, MCITP, MCDST, and CWNA, and I used to work as a IT Support with IT admin tasks plus I was his replacement when he is not in for work or in a vacation, also I work with virtual labs since a very long time ago, so when I got this job I found out that our IT Admin has no IT Admin skills and trying to put me out of work because I know way more than he does in IT and I have skills but he doesn't, and the reason why I asked to have this privilege is not that I want to try new things but it will help me do better after I finish preparing new PC's to join them to the domain instead of witing on the IT Admin the I go to test them again etc..

Thanks again..
