I am trying to decrease user account rights on a computer running Windows 7 pro newly added to a domain. I connected to the domain fine, and when I tried to install software I got the "need Administrator password" dialog box. I was able to input the domain administrator password and install software several times. However, when I try to log into the domain using the administrator username and password, it says the username and password are not valid. I have tried several times to no avail. The main software I want to install needs to have minimal user control, and the only way I can reduce it is with administrator privileges. Any ideas?
When you enter
administrator in the username field on Windows 7, it switches to the local administrator. Make sure you're putting
<DOMAIN>\administrator in the username field.
