Hi, I'm trying to install the 64 bit Windows agent on Windows 10 with ths command from an Admin cmd prompt:

"msiexec /qn /norestart /i puppet-agent-x64-latest.msi PUPPETMASTERSERVER=puppeteer.domain.local PUPPETAGENTACCOUNTDOMAIN=domain.local PUPPETAGENTACCOUNTUSER=puppet PUPPETAGENTACCOUNT_PASSWORD=PASSWORD"

The user puppet is a domain user, the user is a member of a domain group which via GPO is a member of the local admin group. I've also added the puppet user explicitly to the local admins group. Also the puppet user has been given the right to log on as a service via GPO.

Windows event log show me this error, Event ID 10005, MsiInstaller Product: Puppet Agent (64-bit) -- Error 26403. Failed to add user to group. (-2147022676 puppet Administrators)

Not sure how to proceed from here, any ideas?

Thanks, Milan
