Then your domain policy probably restricts your rights as a user.   It is also possible to set the local domain password via a group policy.
When trying to log in as the local admin dont forget to change the Log in To drop down to be that of the local machine and NOT the domain name.

The local administrator password would not change just by adding the workstation to the domain. Make sure you are choosing the local machine to log on to from the drop-down box (This Computer)

Failing that if you are able to log on as a domain admin, you could always set up a new administrator local account (called something other than administrator)

Unless your machine is a Domain Controller, you can always login as a local user/admin.
In the logon screen, if you want to login as a local admin, make sure that in the logon to box you see the machine name and not the domain name.
