Can you use adminpassword to sysprep a sysprep'd computer?

I took an image that has a blank password and uses the sysprep.inf file to
set the password that is encrypted in my sysprep.inf file, then when I go to
make a new image based of that and use the same sysprep folder again, then
load that image it doesn't reset the password. Did I maybe do something
wrong, or can you not make an image from a computer that was imaged? I
swear I reset the admin password back to nothing before I used sysprep and
made the image on my master machine which was loaded with the image. I
wonder if maybe after it was imaged and sysprep set the admin password, if I
can't set it back to blank after and re-sysprep it?

Hi,

This behavior is by designed since the Administrator password on the master
system must be blank. You can refer to the following KB:

Unable to Change Admin Password Using Sysprep
(http://support.microsoft.com/kb/200607/en-us)

Hope it helps.

I haven't heard back from you yet. I am just writing to see how everything
is going. I would appreciate if you could get back to me at your earliest
convenience.
