RJServer is wrong click other user. You are logging onto a domain now not the local server.

By default Windows servers should have remote desktop enabled. Make sure that you have it enabled and the proper users have access to this. Another thing you can check is  windows/3rd party firewalls.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Well most likely you are using a local Admin account instead of the new domain admin account since you must use the domain admin account since you promoted the server your local users and groups are disabled.

it is saying that my password is invalid. What can I do? Is there a default password on this new domain admin account?

You created the domain admin account during the promotion process.

What logon screen do you see? Make sure you domain is listed like domain\username depending on your logon screen

I didn't think I created any domain admin during that process. Right now I get a screen that says RJSERVER\Adminstrator and Other user, then when I click on the administrator it has a field for the password. I put the password in and it says "The username or password is incorrect."
