Hey people ...

I was wondering what you guys name the first local account of your server setup... Where you need to enter the first account during setup of the Mac OS X software.

Usually you enter your own name and configure the device for personal use, but for the server you might want to use something different...

For example you'd name it something obvious like "admin" or "administrator".

Is this the way you do it or do you have any other interesting setup?

Thanks!

I create off the wall names that are less "common" like admin/administrator.

Also, don't use nimda. I see my logs (ssh) filling up with that.

Good luck.

Thanks! I was thinking of using some not too obvious user name as well ... It's interesting you see the nimda in your logs.

Maybe I will just use the name Bob ;-)
