Simplest workaround would be to always join the machine to the domain

And to install as the domain administrator, not the local admin, otherwise you run into this problem, as the OP has done.

  Probably a domain user would suffice.  It might be best if the domain user
account was made a "Power User" in the machine's local user accounts.

cheers, DaveK

I'm not sure that power users have the ability to change ownership in this way.. It may be that you would be required to use a domain administrator account to install and to set up any services you wished to use, though I could be mistaken. I'd have to test it to see.

into a slumber. Wake up! An eye is upon you, staring straight down and
keenly through, seeing all that you are and everything that you will
never be. Yes, an eye is upon you, an eye ready to blink. So face
forward, with arms wide open and mind reeling. Your future has
arrived... Are you ready to go?
