  • password problem

    I'm a new administrator of one server, and the old administrator gave me all the passwords and so on, except one - server recovery password. I'm using SBS2000, it has a recovery CD, but if system crashes down I will need a recovery password to use the CD. The old admin doesn't remmember it.

    can anyone help somehow?

    P.S. I'm a newbie in administrating, so please don't be mad if I don't understand something

          Actually, had I seen your post earlier I could have cut that time down to 0 seconds. SBS 2000 and SBS 2003 PRE SP1 make the DSRM password the same as the main administrator password (probably why the previous sysadmin never supplied you with it).
          However, note because of a bug in the way SP1 for Windows 2003 Server was implemented, the passowrds are no longer synchronised.
          TIA
