Sysprep Tips

I just played with Sysprep and I notice 3 useful things for cloning server:

1) my Local Administrator has been renamed before I run sysprep, after reseal(*) it without set password, it remains renamed

2) my Local Administrator Password has been changed before I run sysprep, after reseal it without set password, it didn't change

3) file system ACL containing Domain Users SID's ACE are not removed after reseal, so if you join again the server to the domain, they will be valid again.



(*) Thanks to Max and Loris for always answering me if I need to press Factory or Reseal
