Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

On Windows Server 2012 R2 the Administrator account does not seem to be able to be renamed.

Have created the normal Rename Administrator GPO: Comp config -> Policies -> Windows settings -> Security settings -> local policies -> Security options Accounts: Rename Administrator Account

But GPO does not get applied for some reason, RSOP indicated the policy engine did not attempt to configure the setting.

Any suggestions?

Has the administrator account already been renamed manually, or by another policy? –  Adam Thompson Mar 7 at 17:02
    
Not that I can see –  NickC Mar 8 at 22:02
