Has anyone installed LAPS in their AD env?


We are leaning towards implementing LAPS (Local Administrator Password Solution) in our AD environment.  My question is, for those that have this installed, would it be wise to have Msft install it or is it doable without their assistance?  From what I can see, it only involves creating and pushing a GPO out and then some security tweaks along the way.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

This should not require Microsoft support if you are familiar with Group Policy and Active Diretory. Althought this is not a trivial (next, next finish) install it is not the complex.

Below is a great step by step how to on setting up and configuring this.
