Rename administrator account
Hi, whats the best way to rename the administrator account in a task sequence for a windows 7 image? I guess there are several ways to do this, local policy, wmic, powershell etc, just wondered what the best way would be and if it can be done to an image that is to be captured or not . Thanks

The best way is using group policy. If you (or your organization) are afraid of group policy, then you can use a VBScript: http://blogs.technet.com/b/heyscriptingguy/archive/2006/05/17/how-can-i-rename-a-local-user-account-on-a-windows-xp-computer.aspx.Jason | http://myitforum.com/cs2/blogs/jsandys | http://blogs.catapultsystems.com/jsandys/default.aspx | Twitter @JasonSandys
