Unable to log on as Contoso\Administrator, how to add to domain? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am doing the 667 Exam course Configuring Microsoft SharePoint 2010.

    According to the instructions provided on the CD I installed 2 virtual machines and run the relevant batch files. The next step is to log on as CONTOSO\administrator on the SP2010-WFE1 machine but it only provides a local administrator.

    How do I add this virtual machine to CONTOSO-DC? (I already tried properties on Computer > Computer name, domain, and workgroup settings > Change settings > Member of Domain: contoso.local but I get an error message "An AD DC ... could not be contacted"

    What can I do? Why don't the provided batch files already give the right settings?
