GPO core fails and reset the name of admin local account

Hi Experts,

Our Default Domain Policy was configured to rename the administrator account. When GPO fails for some reason (and RSOP shows GPO Core Fail) due to sysvol errors, the local administrator account is renamed back to administrator.

When users logon in cache, when they are outside the company, this issue doesn't happen.

Any idea why it happens?

Tks!

If local admin account is rename in the GP and if it is applied on workstation the same cannot change automatically.
It seems some one might have edited the GPO on the DC or manually it has been changed on the worksation.
Are all the workstation having the same issue?
