Are you logging on with a local or domain admin account?

Subject: [gptalk] Tryint to rename admin account


Hi all
Been trying to rename the admin account to something else through a GPO.
I do the following: 
Right-click on Domain controllers OU in AD > Properties > GP tab > Open
> Exp GPO > Create new GPO and call it Rename Admin Account >
Right-click GPO > edit > comp config > win settings > secu settings >
local policies > sec options > doublle click rename administrator
account > define this policy seeting > type the name that i want and
click OK all the way out.
Create a new OU and move one pc (has 2003 on it) to the OU because i
only want to test this on one pc in the domain.Right-click on the OU in
AD > Properties > GP tab > Open > Right-click OU > Link an existing GP >
Rename admin account > Ok...Close all the way out
If i log out and try to log in with the username administrator and the
password it still allows me to. What am i doing wrong?
