Will the 'Accounts: Rename administrator account ' Security Option in the Domain Controller Policy override the Domain Policy?

    Question

  • Hello,

    We've set the 'Accounts: Rename administrator account' Security Option to different settings in both the Domain Controller and Domain Policy.  The intent is for the Builtin Admin acct for the domain, or the 500 account, to be a different name than the Admin accounts on Servers and Workstations.

    Anyone have any experience with this working?  In our lab, the Domain Controller Policy name does not take effect for the Builtin Admin (500) account, so this name is the same as in the Domain Policy.  So, in effect, it seems the name set in the Domain Controller does not override what is set in the Domain Policy for this Security Option.  Can anyone confirm this?


    Thanks for your help! SdeDot

  • the Domain Controller does not override what is set in the Domain Policy for this Security Option.  Can anyone confirm this? >>> Domain Controller policy just effects on DC's.So confirm that Domain Controller policy could not effects on Default domain Policy.

    Thanks for responding, however I don't understand your response.  Specifically, what is meant by 'So confirm that Domain Controller policy could not effects on Default domain Policy'?

    It could not effects on Default Domain Policy.When you configure a policy from Domain Controller policies it only effects DC's not whole domain,like Default domain policy,etc..
