New-SPConfigurationDatabase some or all identity references could not be translated Supply values for parameter Credential

Here I was trying to install SharePoint 2016 on a new Windows Server 2016 laptop. I run the below command to create the configuration and content database.

New-SPConfigurationDatabase –DatabaseName SharePoint_Config –DatabaseServer WIN-JC2B1V15KM5 –AdministrationContentDatabaseName SharePoint_Content –Passphrase (ConvertTo-SecureString [email protected] –AsPlaintext –Force) –FarmCredentials (Get-Credential) -localserverrole SingleServerFarm

When I run the above command, it will ask for credentials which should be a domain account (domain\UserName) and the domain account also should have (Dbcreator, SecurityAdmin, SysAdmin) permission in the database. But what I was giving a normal account, so the error was coming like below:

New-SPConfigurationDatabase some or all identity references could not be translated Suppy values for parameter Credential
New-SPConfigurationDatabase some or all identity references could not be translated Suppy values for parameter Credential

Then I gave credentials of a domain account and the error did not come. And remember to give permission to the database.
