  • Local Administrator

    I am apart of an IT department team. However, a member of the team is no longer with us. But i am having an issue. Each time we add any PC to a domain, it creates a local administrator name with his name. How do i get rid of this?

    I suspect there is a group policy setting to rename the administrator account
    Start doing some RSoP and see which policies the computer is picking up, then look in
    Computer Configuration-Policies-Windows Settings-Security Settings-Local policies-Security Options
    The setting you need to check is Accounts:Rename Administrator Account

      Have a look in the Restricted Groups option. This will cause this on the local machine if enabled.
