My 2003 SBS has started generating the following error.

   SAM  12294

The SAM database was unable to lockout the account of Administrator due to a resource error, such as a hard disk write failure (the specific error code is in the error data) . Accounts are locked after a certain number of bad passwords are provided so please consider resetting the password of the account mentioned above.

Should I change the default Administrator account to a different user name with a new password?

Also check security event logs with logon failure message on the server to determine if your server is in uder attack from some infacted machine or outside network. It is always better to rename default administrator.
