Changing password for Domain Administrator account in SBS 2008

After installing SBS for the first time I am now using the created Admin Account, but am curious about the domain administrator account that comes shipped with Server 2008.

Should this account actually be Enabled, and is it ok to then change the password?

Best practices?

Best practice is to DISABLE the account and create admin accounts for all users who need them.

too many hackers will assume that your admin account is admin or administrator - so creating an admin user called ITadmin or similar will reduce hacking risks..otherwise it shouldnt matter..no services should be starting using admin account - which is normally all you should double check
