  • Forgot domain administrator's password on windows 2003 server!!

    I have a Dell PowerEdge Server and I forgot the domain admin password.

    I've used the following:
    "Offline NT Password & Registry Editor boot disk"
    Ultimate Boot CD

    It looks like I can reset the local admin password. However, when I try the following instrcutions it fails:
    http://www.petri.com/reset_domain_ad...ws_2000_ad.htm

    When I try to reboot, hit F8, and enter "Directory Service Recovery Mode". The machine will boot up as a standalone server I still can not log in locally.

    When the login screen appears, I hit CTRL-ALT-DEL and log in as "Administrator" with no password. It fails.

    Any help would be appreaciated.

    Thanks
