Assuming you mean a DNS domain, you need to have your server IP/hostname registered in the DNS servers managing the domain you want.

Please follow the below steps:

#cp /etc/nsswitch.nis /etc/nsswitch.conf
#vi /etc/defaultdomain

and save the file

#cd /var/yp
#/usr/sbin/ypinit -c
give the master server name

If there is any problem, write the output.

one way is to capture the existing config. do sys-unconfig. after the system reboots, it will bring you through the "installation" process where it asks you the ip, netmask, services, domain etc. you can specify it then.
If im not wrong, you're asking how to join a domain right?
or you can do this method:-
cat /etc/resolv.conf

Now, set up /etc/nsswitch.conf so that hosts are resolved via DNS. You can modify you existing/etc/nsswitch.conf file or just copy /etc/nsswitch.dns to /etc/nsswitch.conf.
