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

Reset Password

Recently, on my labs, I have encountered in certain  common issue which is “The local administrator account becomes the domain administrator” this message means while I am creating a new Virtual Machine I didn’t set complexity password to Administrator when running 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

This is the window I have set a password that’s not meet complexity requirements.

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
