Hostname being added to Adminstrator

  • Hi, I am hoping someone can help me with this.

    I have uploaded my own image to the Fog Server (a win 7 image).

    When my image is finished being deployed to the computer, I can right click on the C Drive and go to Properties then select the Security Tab.

    I have noticed that the Administrator now has the host name of the computer in front of the Administrator.

    Is there any way to remove this so that the hostname\Administrator is just User\Administrator?

    And is there a way to set this up permanently for my image deployments.

    Thanks in advance.

    I’ve seen this with a sysprepped image.

    The profile isn’t properly removed, and isn’t valid for the new system. So, as the “new” system is created, it can’t create C:\Users\Administrator as it already exists, so it creates C:\Users\Administrator.<hostname>

    It doesn’t hurt anything usually though.

    I imagine you could make a script to reset the administrator info after login and delete the folder.
