Altiris Service Account in the Desktop Local Administrators Group

Created: 27 Feb 2013 | 2 comments

We see a lot of machines in the environement having the Altiris service account in the machine local administrators group but not on all. Anyone know if Altiris is adding this account while pushing the agent out? Or is there something else for which the account is added for?
