Impact of renaming administrator account

What can be the impact on Scheduled Jobs of renaming the built-in "Administrator" account to "admin". I have installed SQL server enterprise ed. (using the old windows administrator account) and created some jobs on my sql server. The service log on is one …but apart from that what else ..especially on SQL jobs side..will they execute successfully.

No issues, but it is advisable to use SA account instead of using local admin. If the job involves network file maintenance then SQLAgent must be configured with required privileges. Satya SKJ
