Local Admin accounts

My hosting data center remove/rename all the Local Admin accounts.   Is it important to have them in the event the Domain unavailable?  I don't have a physical local access to the server anyway.

it's helpful, but not necessary.  The local accounts would be a troubleshooting tool, similar to wireshark or nmap.  However, you don't want to leave them on servers.  They're for single use, install, get the info you need, uninstall.

You should be fine without local admin accounts.

It's a common security practice to rename these accounts.  You should still be able to log in with cached credentials if the domain is unavailable.
