  • Renaming Local Admin account on servers

    Is there a way in Hyena to rename the local Administrator account on a number of servers at once?

    Thanks.

    You can use our free RenameUser utility found here:
    http://www.systemtools.com/free_frame.htm

    Create a batch file (using Hyena's Generate Macro function) to run it against your computers.

        It says on the download page that this should not be use dfor Windows 2000.

        Is that true?

        If so, is there anyother good way to rename accounts? We are going through and renaming all local "administrator" accounts.

          When we say "Windows 2000" we mean Active Directory. If these are Windows 2000 servers, then Active Directory is not installed, so its not an issue. With AD, there isn't such a thing as a 'username', but with local systems, there is only one username attribute.

            Ok, I am dense today. Correct me if I'm wrong...

            You are saying the tool can be used for local account renaming, but not AD account renaming.

            Which would make perfect sense, of course.

            If that is the case, you should really change the wording on the free tools webpage to indicate that.

              Yes, you understand correctly; this utility is only meant for renaming local accounts. The page has been updated.
