First , sorry for my english. 
We are migrating our computers to a domain,we are using profwiz and in the step that profwiz asks about user/password
My question in this step is :
Do I have to put the domain administrator user?
Or
Do I have to put the domain user account that I want to migrate his local user profile?






I did it in two ways, I joined the PCs to domain correctly. After, using the account login to domain with the normal user without problems . But I donĀ“t know what is the difference between the 2 ways

Thanks for reply, the picture that I put in my message is an example for the web.

But I did it in two different PCs in this step, one with domain user account and the other with domain admin account.
The two times the migration was successfully.
This is my question, the differences between this two ways.

It doesn't matter, there are no differences. You just need to specify an account that has permissions to join the machine to the domain.

However, remember that Microsoft set a limit on the number of times an ordinary user account can join a workstation to a domain. See https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/troubleshoot/windows-server/identity/default-workstation-numbers-join-domain
