Local Administrator Account


Can someone please clarify something for me.....

I am having problems with Sage Support at the moment and they are telling me to login to the Server as the Local Administrator, I didn't realise I had one. the Server is a domain controller, does the Domain Admin not have the same permissions?

I am looking on the internet to reset the local admin password and it just says it doesn't exist in a domain environment?

The Server in question is Windows Server 2012

Local administrator gets overrided by the domain administrator once the server is setup in a domain environment.  Loging in as the administrator of the domain is the admin.  A domain admin by default is part of the administrators group which is another default across the network.
