BUILTIN/Administrators on clusterFrom SQL BOL : –
You should not remove the BUILTIN/Administrators account from SQL Server. The IsAlive thread runs under the context of the cluster service account, and not the SQL Server service account. The cluster service must be part of the administrator group on each node of the cluster. If you remove the BUILTIN/Administrators account, the IsAlive thread will no longer be able to create a trusted connection, and you will lose access to the virtual server.
Is there any option/ trick using that i can remove BUILTIN/Administrators account from SQL Server on a/p cluster?? Deepak Kumar –An eye for an eye and everyone shall be blind
