Hello Rowland,

Finally Microsoft LAPS is working in our environment and I thank you for 
your support.

However, I noticed one thing. Microsoft LAPS is supposed to manage even 
the Built-In Account - "Administrator", but it not doing so. In my 
environment, While I am trying to figure out why it doesn't manage the 
Built-in administrator account, I have enabled another Group Policy to 
change the password of Built-in Administrator Account and disabled the 
same. Other local administrators are managed using Microsoft LAPS.

Thanks again for your support.

Best regards,
