Just got a Win2008 machine - when I try to run DCPROMO and choose "create a
new domain in a new forest"

I get "the local admin account becomes the administrator account when you
create a new domain. The new domain cannot be created because the local
administrator account password does not meet requirement"


How can I fix this and get on with DCPROMO?

Thanks,

Hi
Choose a password that meets the requirements.
In 2008 the password must be at least 7 characters, must include :
-characters from three of the following four categories:
-uppercase characters (A through Z)
-lowercase characters (a through z)
-Base 10 digits (0 through 9)
-Non-alphabetic characters (for example, !, $, #, %)

For example :
P@ssw0rd


To help you with the new domain check:

Have a Nice day.

Raul,
change your local admin password so it is at least 7 characters long and it
includes cap and small letters, as well as one digit or non-alphanumeric
character. Also make sure that it does not include more than 3 characters
that would match a part of the username...
