    • Is it possible to create two separate GPO rules. 
      One rule with custom admin name and one with administrator name?
      We have computers with two local admin accounts: administrator and localadmin
      So is it possible to use LAPS to change those accounts password same time with different GPO's?

    • Dear All
      I have Six Number of Active Directory Installed on 6 location. All are in Write Mode. I am going to install LAPS on my Root Domain controller. what will happen if my root domain controller gets failed. My question is does Laps attribute will be replicated to all domain controller or it will reside only to Root domain controller. How can i retrieve users endpoints password if my root domain controller gets failed.

    • In LAPS solution, is there limitation of number of computers
  • Can i change the password Complexity of Laps

    • Hi, 
      We have rolled out LAPS in the environment and it is working well. How ever when we deploy laptops the LAPS GPO kicks in and the process of entering the password slows us down significantly when deploying user laptops. Is there anyway we can change the complexity of the password so it will not affect newly deployed laptops?
      What would you suggest?

    • The LAPS adm template is not showing in GP. Did I miss something or do I need to import this template?
  • Can certain letters be omitted in LAPS
    1 Posts | Last post May 24, 2017
    • We have implemented LAPS here at the company I work for, and I was just curious if there is a way to omit certain letters. Sometimes there can be some confusion as to what letter is upper or lower case. Such as lower case "l" and "1" can sometimes be tough to distinguish. Appreciate any responses that may help. Thanks you
