Windows Authentication failure

OK so I have configured TeamCity to use Windows Authentication as per this help file:

However, when prompted to create an administrator account, I cannot login with a "Failed to set up administrator account. Incorrect username or password." error.

I am entering my username like this: ABC\username, replacing the ABC exactly with the domain name, and username exactly with my domain username. I've had other members of my team try as well so I know it's not just a password flub. I notice that when I enter nonsense for the domain I get the same error, so I can't tell if we're successfully connecting to the domain in the first place. I guess that we are not.

I've set the jcifs.netbios.wins property to the WINS ip, although I get the same error .

I am at a larger enterprise so there are probably some things our IT has set up that I don't know about that are mucking with us. I don't know much about Windows Authentication.

Is there a log somewhere that might provide us some clues as to what is going on?

That's probably an issue with resolution of NetBIOS domain name.
Try to specify the domain name in full DNS format, like domain.local

Ah, of course. That was it.
