I have built a new VM ready to convert to a template, and ran the following sysprep command against it
sysprep.exe /generalize /reboot /oobe /unattend:C:\Prep.xml

After this ran, the VM rebooted back to the login screen and i noticed the administrator password had been reset, so i logged in with alternate account to reset it back, then powered it down

Will this affect me being able to convert it a template no (from a sysprep perspective)
