Hello MS Q&A! I hope you guys can help. We are deploying LAPS and I am running into a problem with computers that do not have the built-in Administrator account enabled. We already have a GPO that will enable LAPS to all computers but it will not work if the built-in Administrator account is disabled. I know to enable it we also need to apply a password to the account. Below is a list of what I want to do...
- Enable the built-in administrator account
- Change built-in Administrator account
- Have LAPS take over its password management (we already have LAPS GPO, but any suggestions are welcome)
The idea is to enable the built-in Administrator account, change its name, and then have LAPS manage the account. I am testing a GPO we created and it is not enabling the account on some computers that do not have this account already enabled.
Your support is greatly appreciated.
