New Domain in an existing tree

I am setting up a new Domain Controller in Windows 2008 it says the admin account needs to be set to required password using "net user" I cant seem to  get the right syntax command. Can anyone help with this?

If you need the command with the /passwordreq switch, it would be

net user Administrator /passwordreq:yes

I assume you have installed Server Core Edition which is why you cannot use the GUI interface?

The Net user command for changing a password is quite simply

net user Administrator <newpassword>

You must run the command from an elevated command prompt.

I have tried net user Administrator {password} [passwordreq]

but no luck
