The Administrator password I set during unattended installation is ignored.

A. A known issue is that when using the AdminPassword unattended installation option and it contains a * character it means the install procedure should set the Administrator account to use a blank password. This means that if it appears anywhere in the password then a blank Administrator password will be set.


The fix is to not have a * in the Administrator password.
