  • I don't have the Domain administrator password. How do I reset it?

    I'm in the same pickle. Just inheriting the network from another IT fellow. He not avaliable for information, and we are Desperate to get access to the server. I need to get into the server.

    I'm a bit scared to screw everything up, so maybe i can get a little help.

    I need to logon to the server. I don't have an administrator password. I don't want to damage the existing system, and i know there is a certain amount of risk, but would anyone mind please walking me thru what i need to do to gain access? Once we are in ther server, we can get the IT from our Software company to take over, but we need to get into ther server first.

    Anyone?

      And what sort of server is it?
      If it is Novell you may be able to cancel at logon and get in that way
      if it is a more recent Microsoft one, the rules are different

      Note the above was meant to be a joke -- I assume it is Windows 2000 or higher
      If so, check other threads including one in the SBS forum about domain admin passwords
      Do you have any other accounts with domain admin permissions?
