I would like to replace the local administrator accounts on all PCs on our domain via Group Policy if possible.
Currently the local admin account is something like "User" and like Admin or Administrator is one of the first to be targeted by brute force attacks etc..
I'd like to change to a nondescript name such as "@dmi#istra$or"
Can this change on local PC's be accomplished via domain group policy?
Thanks Experts
