For security reasons in Windows 2000 it is a sugestion to rename the "administrator" user and then to create a new a"dministrator" user with lower privileges than an Administrator.

It is recommended to do it in CCM? does it affect the telephone service or the administration of the CCM?

thanks everybody

usually it's only recommended to change the built in Administrator username, but when performing upgrades you need to set it back to Administrator.

you can create other users if they need to access the OS, just make sure nothing from CUCM has to do with them, or any service running on the server
