I have a Server 2012 virtual machine I'm running on Parallels 8. I'm having a problem with promoting this Server 2012 virtual machine to a domain controller. Every time I try, I receive a prerequisite failure message, "Verification of prerequisites for Domain Controller promotion failed. The local Administrator account becomes the domain Administrator account when you create a new domain. The new domain cannot be created because the local Administrator account does not meet requirements." What are the requirements? I have tried different passwords, 10 characters in length, with all 4 character types included; capitol numbers. For example, one password I tried was: D4n$d0m41n Is there a problem with this password? Why would I be getting this message? Is there a way around this?
