Retaining Existing Administrator Account When SysPrep-ing

Retaining Existing Administrator Account When SysPrep-ing

Retaining Existing Administrator Account When SysPrep-ing

We are configuring an appliance which will be deployed at remote systems for systems monitoring and to act as a local scripting host for automated management tasks. We have created the first box, but I need to generate an UNATTEND.XML to retain certain aspects of the configuration. Is it possible to do this?

In a nutshell, I need to keep the existing Administrator account and really nothing else. SysPrep already takes care of the rest that I need. The target system is Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard.

I have WAIK installed and a new Answer File ready to be configured against the correct image from the installation DVD. We also have appropriate licensing all set and I've figured out how to integrate that already.
