  • w2k server domain controller admin password lost-how do we reset?

    Trying to find best method to reset a windows 2000 server/domain controller that has lost the admin password- nobody knows where.
    can't logon to the domain controller without it...
    came in after the fact for a small nonprofit child advocacy agency that has no record, free-lance it guy has moved on, and need to add a new user to the domain..
    existing pc's still working and authenticate to the domain controller, but without access to it directly, can't add new user...
    have a copy of boot disc that resets pwords on xp, but I don't think it will work on a domain controller..
    anyone else experienced this before?
