Change/ Disable Administrator AD Account

Hello Experts,

I would like to change the AD Administrator account to something else. My plan is to copy the default Administrator account to something else then disable the default Administrator account. Does anyone know of any know issues with doing this?

Thanks in advanced.

Make sure you have the necessary accounts added as members of Domain Admins, Enterprise Admins, etc and that you're not using any scheduled tasks with that logon info. Other than that it will be fine to disable it. In an MS book I read it was considered a best practice to rename and disable the administrator account. Hope this helps.
