    SysPrep Admin Passwords

    Afternoon All

    Right, ok, it's been a while since I've built my XML files and what not, so I'm just checking them over manually, and wondering how I go about encrypting the Admin Password if I'm editing manually instead of using WAIK for my SysPrep and Unattended XMLs.

    Thanks all

    If you wanted to go even more secure you would create a special account and delegate rights in AD. Its a little more secure.

    Aye, I could do, but I'm trying to figure out how I encrypt the password in the first place, or do I have to use WAIK?

    You will need to use WAIK (99% sure you do)
