Avoid using the Admin account

There are a number of things (APM, App Designer, Import Module, etc...) where you need to connect to AM with Administrative Rights.  It is good practice to create seperate accounts which have bAdminRights=1 rather than using the "Admin" account itself.  Keep the "Admin" account in reserve as an "Oh Heck" option.  This might seem obvious to folks, but I have seen a lot of places over the years use "Admin" and I always recommend against it.

Years ago worked with a Customer who had not set up any other accounts with Admin Rights besides "Admin" and it got locked out.  This was back when I was in Support so I was able to get them SQL to run on the backend to fix the issue, but it was a bit tense for them until we did so.
