Reset domain admin password on server without knowing any of the previous passwords.

Hello
I have a windows 2003 Small Business Server.
I have physical access to the server but the previous IT guy left without leaving us any of the passwords etc.
I have a CD that resets the local administrator password of the PC.
However I have to reset the domain password without reinstalling everything up from scratch.
How can I reset the domain administrator password on my server?

Hi eggster34,

I always suggest using UBCD4WIN which will allow you to use the PasswordRestore utility in a Pre-Windows environment.  Information on that can be found at http://ubcd4win.com
