This is a Step by Step Guide to Deploy Microsoft LAPS. The Local Administrator Password Solution (LAPS) provides management of local account passwords of domain joined computers. When LAPS is implemented, passwords are stored in Active Directory (AD) and protected by ACL, so only eligible users can read it or request its reset. For environments in which users are required to log on to computers without domain credentials, password management can become a complex issue. The Local Administrator Password Solution (LAPS) provides a solution to this issue of using a common local account with an identical password on every computer in a domain. LAPS resolves this issue by setting a different, random password for the common local administrator account on every computer in the domain.
