I can't login to my newly created admin account - says not admin account but it is...
0
I just created a Google Workspace account with an existing gmail account. Now it wants me to login to that account but then when I try to do that, it tells me I can only login with an Admin account. Which is obviously confusing considering I am trying to login with the same account I setup for Google Workspace admin. I have googled different ways around this and can't find any answer. I can't even delete my admin/workspace account in order to try to start over since I can't login to this admin portal. What gives?

Sign in to your Admin console
If you have access to an administrator account, you can sign in to the Google Admin console. The Admin console is where administrators manage Google services for people in an organization.  To sign in now (requires an administrator account):
  1. In any web browser, go to admin.google.com.
  2. Enter admin email address for exsample   johndoe @ yourdomain.com  Click Next   and not  johndoe @ gmail.com
  • Starting from the sign-in page, enter an administrator account name and password. Forgot your password? An administrator account has privileges to manage services for other people in your organization. The Admin console is only available when you're signed in to an administrator account. If you don't have access to an administrator account, get help from someone else who does. Who is my administrator?
  • If you see a list of Google accounts on the sign-in page, be sure to choose an administrator account (it does not end in @gmail.com). If your administrator account isn't listed, click the link to Sign in to a different account.
Tip: To switch between accounts on the same computer without signing in each time, see Sign in to multiple accounts. Questions

Yes that is the link I used to sign in. The problem is that it did not have me create a new email. So I am using the Gmail that I set it up with. I don't understand why it didn't have me create a different username.

I tried to connect it to my domain but it did not connect. So it did not create an email address with that new domain name. I created the account through a normal Gmail address and then tried to complete the account setup by connecting it to the domain, which did not work. And now I can't login to the admin in any way whatsoever.

Okay, so it looks like I setup an email at the domain but the password I wrote down isn't working and now I am in a purgatory of trying to reset it. I will get back on this thread if I can solve it.
