Before you consider what I want to achieve as insane from a security standpoint, please continue reading:
I'm setting the password for the local admin account on all computers in the domain with a startup script which contains the password in cleartext, of course.
I have limited file permissions to the script and only Domain Computers and Domain Admins accounts can access the file.
To keep it short, do you still consider what I want to do as insane or is this OK from a security standpoint?
My use case is as follows: I just need the local admin accounts in case of a fallback scenario: A computer drops out of the domain or its network adapter goes broken or something like that and then I'd need the local admin account.
In the domain that I'm administering from now on, different computers have different local admin passwords, and the previous administrator (from whom I took over) can't remember the credentials he once set so I thought I had to reset them all.
