Issue/Introduction

The admin account is not always the preferred name for all users administering their systems.  An account name specific to their site might be wanted.

Resolution

The admin account name should not be changed.  The name change impacts the configuration database as well as many configuration menus.  Changing the admin account name will cause Security Analytics to fail in many different and unexpected ways.
