Step 4

For further clarification:

When prompted for credentials you may have to enter them in the following format or you will continue to get the “You must supply a user account” dialogue box.

Username: domain.local\UserAccount

in my case i enterd

company.pri\Administrator password: it is password of administrator account of main domain controllor.

So for anyone new to this that means -> (whatever the domain you are trying to join) \ (the user account on that domain you want to give credentials from)
