As you saw in Figure 3.71, the BUILTIN\Administrators group for the local server is a member of the
Farm Administrators group by default. Often, after SharePoint is installed and you’ve added your
own farm administrators, it is a good idea to remove the BUILTIN\Administrators group from the
Farm Administrators membership so as to keep server administrators who may not be qualified to
administer a SharePoint farm from doing so.
To remove the group, click the check box next to it in the page, and choose Actions in the Action bar.
In the drop-down menu, select Remove Users From Group. This will remove the selected item (in
our case BUILTIN\Administrators) from the Farm Administrators group. Now only the farm account
(don’t ever remove the farm account), the setup account, and the accounts you add will have access
to the farm at the administrator level. For more about managing the farm administrators group or
users and permissions in general, see Chapter 12, “Users and Permissions.”

When creating a site collection, you can add two site collection administrators (a primary
administrator and a backup). But often you need more site collection administrators to take care of
day-to-day management of a busy site collection. In this case, we added only one site collection
administrator during installation. Therefore, it’s a good idea to add at least one more.
If you have only one site collection administrator, you can add the secondary one via Central
Administration, choosing Application Management Change Site Collection Administrators to
display the page shown in Figure 3.72.
But to add more accounts to site collection administrators than just those two, you can go to
the site collection itself.
1. While on the site collection, click Site Actions, and select Site Permissions from the menu,
as shown in Figure 3.73.
