Hi list,

Part of my new job, I'm cleaning up the accounts (both AD and local)
in a windows environment (~2000+ in all). Getting to the local
services accounts, i wonder if you would have some remediation
approach to track such accounts, remove unused ones, and, at a later
stage (long term), to manage those which are hard coded in 3rd party
applications or that need to be remain in the environment.


I would start by making a policy to expire passwords.
