You can download  LOphtCrack at http://www.evadenet.com/downloads/lophtcrack.shtml follow the instructions and crack the admin password from a workstation.  I've used it several times on Net admins that have left or quit at clients and it has never let me down.

I have used this on numerous occasion to reset, not only server admin passwords, but desktop systems too.
