Does anyone know how to do this remotely when trying to change the local admin account name?

I know it can be done via GPO but we do not have that capability yet.

Thank you.

Y'all seem to be missing the point of his question, he's asking to change the NAME, not the password:

  • Congrats on your red belt PressanyKey (:
  • I have used psexec for password changes but I was focusing on the local admin account name.
    • pspasswd can be used for both local and remote machines...
