Client Push installation accounts - local administrator account RRS feed

  • Question

  • Just wondering what others do in this situation.

    In the Client Push installation accounts I like to add numerous account to increase the rate of successful client installation.

    In this environment, there are several passwords used for the LOCAL builtin administrator account. I can list 2 of the passwords by using the following formats for the user name:

    .\administrator - uses password 1

    %machinename%\administrator - uses password 2

     

    If I try to reuse any of the user name, it tells me that the user name is already in use, however I want to add it again but with a different password.  What do others do?

  • You can't have the same account twice. What I do is create a domain account, use a GPO to make it a local admin and use that account.

  • You can even add the computer account of the siteserver to the local admins using a GPO. It will be used by client push if no push account was defined.
