    @Joe: Yes, I was commenting on the current state. Forgot to mention, that I like your solution.

    I do wish LAPS be built into the OS though; but that's feedback for a different team. :)

    Using a Client Push is well understood to be the least secure option for deploying ConfigMgr. As this results in a theft-able credential being left behind. If this credential is highly privileged, it offers an attacker a very easy avenue to compromise the environment.

    A simply attack scenario could be as easy as this: Attacker gains control of a single system (maybe a phished user's workstation, a poorly protected DMZ server, etc). They uninstall the ConfigMgr client, wait for the admin to re-push the agent, then capture the Client Push credential. From there, they now have a credential that has administrative rights to every system in the environment.

    For more information, I highly recommend reading the Pass-The-Hash whitepapers: At minimum, guidance around Client Push should be updated to discourage its use.
