  • How edit AD 2003 database?

    Hello,

    I'd like reset AD 2003 Administrator password, but previous administrator has disabled default Administrator account and has created second administrator.

    Now I have problem because I don't know the name of second administrator. How enable default account or check second name?

    Best regards

    Is this in a Domain? If so, run "Active Directory Users and Computers". Find the "Domain Admins" group. Look at the "Members" tab. Any accounts in here will have full rights on the domain.

    If this is not a domain, right-click "My Computer". Click "Manage". Expand "Local users and groups", click "Groups". Double-click "Administrators". Members of this group have full control of the computer.

      Yes it's, but I can't use "Active Directory Users and Computers" because I'm not able login (I don't know second administrator account name and password, additionally default administrator account has ).

      I'm able login only as local administrator, I've got physical access to server so i can boot from CD/DVD - but I need some tool or something?

        Can you log in with an "Account Operator" or "Server Operator" account? At least then you will be able to use ADU&C to LOOK at the groups I describe.

          Unfortunately I can't. Does somebody know some solution?

              Yes I've. Maybe you don't understand me? I don't know second administrator account name so what name use here:

              Code:
              net user ??????????????? 123456 /domain
              I need some program, which can tell me this name (read this information from active directory database).

                If you can do the NET USER bit, why not do a NET USER /ADD /DOMAIN followed by a NET GROUP /ADD /DOMAIN to make that account a domain admin?
