Can you disable the reset password for the Administrator account?
Posted on 2004-10-07
Quick question here.
We are to lock down a Server (windows 2003) from a specific user.
The user however is Company XYZ's IT manager, however they do not trust him to get into certian areas of the server.
I already know this sounds silly, but he does to some light administrative tasks - reset passwords, manages FTP server, etc.
We are to lock him out of knowing the main Administrator account. We will of course change the password, but....
We need a way to lock the 'Reset Password' fuctionality on the Administrator Account, as he can simply just change the password.
Is there a way to do this?
