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.

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
