I don't like to eat right and exercise either. I would rather live on chocolate, peanut butter, pizza and mountain dew. Sometimes we must do things we don't "like" because it is the best way to do it.

I would rather have to change the password that my build server uses every x months than have to manually do a build every x days or hours.

So, to avoid one issue (talking to a sysadmin?) you have created another. To me if a dev is doing the same steps over and over rather than automating it they are wasting their time and not being as productive as possible.

But, it is of course your team and your project and you have to do it the way you see fit. It was just a suggestion.
