Predefined admin account


Question about local administrative accounts and privileges:

According to the manual the predefined "admin" account has full access.

Does this means:

1) another local administrator account will never be able to get has much prviliges has the predefined one?

2) to maintain full access, the predefined "admin" must be used and thus, cannot be deleted?


Kind regards,

Defult account is a superuser account.You can create a superuser account with same priviliges.

Admin is a superuser account just you cannot change its name at first.But you can delete it with another superuser account.

Thx Bulent,

From a secure configuration baseline policy point of view, deleting (or rather replacing it) the default administrative accounts, should be the first thing to do :smileyhappy:
