Create new local admin and set password


  • So we were using a GPO to disable the existing local administrator on scoped servers then create a new local admin with password and add it to the local administrators group.

    Since we created that GPO, Microsoft have released a security patch to stop the password being modified in any way so this method is no longer usable for us (,-2014)

    I'm having a tuff time trying to find a method to recreate the steps I was actioning in the GPO without going down the path of paying for a solution and was wondering if I have missed something?

    Windows server 2003, 2008, 2012 clients.
