Changing the Administrator user name

I have created a new group policy to change the name of Administrator to xxxxxx, as described on the Microsoft website.

I can access the server from home, but when I use my RDC link with the username Administrator it still lets me logon, so do I have to reboot the server for it to take effect.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You shouldn't have to, no.

You may want to reboot and log on once with the new account to configure the profile now.

Yes you were correct, as I just tried to login using RDC and it wouldn't let me until I changed the user name, I obviously didn't leave it long enough for the changes to filter into AD
