  • changing local admin account name

    i am interested changing the local admin account name from the standard administrator name to something else. this process has been started previously so some machines already have the new admin name. is there a way to identify all machines that still have administrator as an account and change them as a whole?

    You can export the local users on your computers, but you wouldn't be able to specify a user that you are looking for. It will export all local users. The other problem would be that Hyena doesn't have a way to bulk rename accounts.

        We do have a free utility, at the bottom of the Free Utilities page, for renaming local user accounts. You could build a simple batch file using Access or Excel and run it after you have determined what you need to do. If you know in advance your computer names and the new name, you could just run it and let it error out on the ones that have already been renamed.
