Have you tried to use the full address as server? Ie.
neotokyodc.netokyo.net instead of just neotokyodc? Maybe you the
DOMAINNAME\Username instead of just Administrator?

I see you used userPrincipalName as loginname. Then you need to use the
name in that attributes. Usually Username@domain (i.e.
administrator@netokyo.net).
If you want to login using your "short-name" you need to use
sAMAccountName as your login attribute.

Thanks a lot, I had to waste a lot of time before I finally got that I am not allowed to use ‚ÄúDOMAIN.TLD\user‚ÄĚ but only ‚ÄúDOMAIN\user‚ÄĚ. Just pointing that out for the next one comming along during his/her research. (using foreman 1.22)
