Disable Server administrator Acct-Create New one ?

Post by plenic » Wed Dec 18, 2019 7:19 pm

As s precaution, what mailenable services will have issue with me disabling the built-in administrator account on the win 2012 standard server and creating another ambiguous one to manage the server with?

What will be effected?

Cheers

Just change the name of it, disabling the built in server admin will cause you other issues related with windows server. However, simply use computer manager, and change the username works quite well. Be sure to log out and back in after doing this or you will get some funky behavior.
