I have a virtual environment with the following structure:
- DC: Windows Server 2008
- Client: Windows 7
I installed Active Directory on the Windows Server 2008 and made it in domain
januapp.local, then I joined the client which uses local authentication with username and password
utkarsh to the domain by using the DC administrator username and password. It perfectly added it to the domain
So, when I restart the client machine and logged in using the same username and password,
utkarsh, it logged me into the domain
januapp.local. So, all was good there.
Problem Starts here
But, then I tried to join my main domain on Windows 10 to the same domain
januapp.local using the administrator username and password.
Note: On that Windows 10, I didn't set any authentication to log me in.
When I restart the PC, on the main screen I got
another user new login option in right lower left. When I go there it asks me to type the authentication credentials to join januapp.
At that point I didn't have any special authentication credentials; I only used the administrator username and password to join Windows to the domain.
Are the administrator username and password required? I tried, but it says username and password are not valid.
Then, what kind of username and password are required?
