Multiple administrative accounts on one server. How do I block deletion
Posted on 2011-09-28
A long story, but I have inherited two servers at a remote hosting site.
We bought out another company and inherited these servers as part of the process. The existing owner has control of the administrator account on these servers. They've set up a new local account on the server in my name, with administrator permissions. I am able to RDP to the server and access the machine properly.
Due to some trust issues, management has requested that I have my account flagged so that the administrator account cannot delete it or force a password change on me. This will ensure I always have access to the remote servers and cannot be locked out, even if the new partners IT people try to do so.
Is this possible? I can't think of a way around this as I don't have control of the actual administrator account.
Suggestions would be appreciated.
