Win10: enabling local admin account

Regular Contributor

Hi,

 

i've experienced a problem with the local admin account options.

When creating a new device configuration policy with policy type "endpoint protection" there are options in the blade "local device security options" > "Accounts".

The first one is called "Local admin account" with the description, that says, that i can enable or disable the local admin account (the build-in one) with this config item.

The first problem: The two config options are "block" or "not configured", which is kind of weird. 

No matter which option i choose, the local admin account will left deactivated.

 

The renaming option is working as expected.

By the way: At the moment i'm creating a new user and add this one to the local admin group via OMA-URI configurations.
