SharePoint - Register a new managed account

 I was getting an error while I was trying to add a new managed account.

An error occurred while getting information about the user username at server servername: The system detected a possible attempt to compromise security. Please ensure that you can contact the server that authenticated you.


If you are trying to add a new managed account using a local account, you can perform this task via PowerShell.

Right click on SharePoint 2010 Management Shell > Run as Administrator
In the PowerShell window - type: $cred = Get-Credential
You will be prompted to enter an account and password (here you can type in a local account)
Back in the PowerShell window - type: New-SPManagedAccount -Credential $cred
Even though the warning appears, the account is added.
