Not wasting a license for an admin account.

Hello Everyone,

Is there a best practice, or possible way for not wasting a license for an admin account when using LDAP integration?  I have the need to maintain a system level account that is not tied into the LDAP, but I do not use this account unless there is an issue with the LDAP.  I feel like its a waste to account for this license when I could use it for an employee.

Add a user who needs to be admin to the admin group.  Then you can disable the internal admin account.  (If you use LDAP and need to recover without it, you'll need to re-enable the user with SQL to get things going again, but it's not that much of a hassle.)
