Other ID as administrator ID in Image Assist.

This question has been answered by Dell Image Assist

Hi. Image Assist is really useful in create standard image for my organization.

Part of security concern in my organization is the usage of "Administrator" ID.

In creating WIM image using DELL Image Assist, only allow for Administrator ID available in the image. I can set password for it.

Is there anyway for me not using "administrator" ID but other ID such as "manager", "admin" or anything else which has the same elevation/permission as "administrator" in creating image with Image Assist?

Thank you.

    You have a couple of options depending on what exactly you want:

     

    1. You can simply rename the built in admin account with a wmic command on boot. wmic useraccount where name='Administrator' rename 'Admin'

    or

    1. Create a new admin user.

      1. Create a new admin user, with whatever name you want.

      2. Log out of built in admin

      3. log in to the new account

      4. run the below command,

      5. Disable built in Admin Account using net user Administrator active:no command

      6. keep a password on the built in admin account so if anyone re-activates it is pw protected

     

    Thank you.
