Administrator 並沒有特權可以防止PWD policy 的套用, 而下列資料表達的是:

-> 預設狀況下Administrator 帳戶不會被”真的”鎖定是由於pwdProperties這個值預設是1 – (Passwords must be complex, and the administrator account cannot be locked out).

-> 所以也就是說沒有文件提到Administrator 這個帳戶有特權, 主因是由於pwdProperties這個值在控制。

-> 所以Administrator account 是可以被鎖定的囉? 是的! 可以透過ADSIEDIT.msc 修改pwdProperties參數來達到。(不建議)
