Mix Environments

Hi...
We have a spanish environment Domain. The DC is Spanish Windows Server. We are planing to add 25 French Windows 7 OS workstations.
Since administrator account is spelled differently between the two languages, is it needed to make any changes to the current DC to support French OS WS as well.
Thank you for your help



What you see is different but the SID remains the same. Windows does not use the displayed name but the SID

Not really a challenge.
AD Best practise recommends that you disable the built-in Administrator accounts.
You then create a new administrator account with a single spelling irrespective of the OS base language.



There might be issues whenever the plain text name is used. Some login scripts rely on correct spelling. But the login itself works as told above.



Thanks for your comments.
We have Joined the FR OS Workstation to the domain. We are seeing some differences. For instance, we have a binary file that set customization to a 3rd party application. It works fine under Spanish OS (joined to the domain)
Under the french OS, before joining to the domain works ok, but after Joining to the domain the binary file acts differently. The issue mostly is that after execution, once the customization is done, it tries to delete itself by finding out its process ID, and and using taskkill to kill itself, but it is not able to delete itself.
This program runs, all the time under domain administrator, once it has been joined to the domain.
Under the local administrator before joining to the domain works alright and the binary file delete itself, but after joining to the domain with the new profile that has been pushed from the domain, it cannot delete itself also.

Thank you for your help.
