How to fix “The local administrator account becomes the domain administrator”

 

In one of my Labs training, I have encountered a very common issue “The local administrator account becomes the domain administratorWhich means I created a new Virtual Machine I didn’t set complexity, password and make it an issue when we run DCPROMO command.

“Currently, a password is not required for the local Administrator account. We recommend that you use the net user command-line tool with the /passwordreg:yes option to require a password for this account before you create the new domain; otherwise, a password will not be required for the domain Administrator account.”

 

The local administrator account becomes the domain administrator

In my case, in this window, I have set a password that’s not complexity:

The local administrator account becomes the domain administrator

 

The solution is:

Open Run as Administrator, and run the commands that appear below:

(סיסמה  = just to blur my password )

 

net user Administrator <YourPassword> /passwordreq:yes 

The local administrator account becomes the domain administrator

 

Hope this information is useful for you

Thanks !
