Adding a server to windows server 2012 essentials

What's the best way to connect a second server to an existing windows server essentials 2012 domain?

I tried the //xyz/connector/ method but I wasn't sure whether I should be supplying the domain administrator user account details, my own standard account details or a new account just for this server.

Can anyone help?

It'll need to be an account with permission to join the domain. That is usually a domain admin.

When I supply the domain admin credentials to the connector app it specifically warns me not to and to use a standard user?  This was my confusion.
