Joining ghosted machines to the domain via SCCM

For our disaster recovery process we have a number of workstations at a service provider which they ghost a stored image to. Before SCCM I used to have an altiris task which would spot these new machines and join them to the domain for me.
Is this possible using SCCM? I've found articles about how to generalize the sccm client before the image is captured, and on my test machine I can see they are being found by SCCM. I have a collection for these devices (based on machine name) and so could advertise something to them. However:
* So far no application or task sequence is picked up by these new machines (only old items in software center from the reference machine)
* If the task/application needs to run in the context of system, then how would one secure the credentials used (powershell Credential files can only be used on the machine they are created on?)
Does anyone else use a similar process for DR scenarios?
