Enable Administrator Account
Posted on 2006-06-01
I have inherited a company network.
The I.T. administrator (who left on bad terms) before leaving leaving decided to disable every account but one.
This one account that does have access does not have the necessary permissions to enable AD Accounts.
The company owner wants the whole network scrapped, all machines wipped and completely rebuilt, fine but i need access to the server to back up data.
Is there a way of enabling the Administrator account or a simpler way of recovering the data on the HD.
Please also bare in mind i can only log on remotely, not onto the actual server.
The server is Windows 2003 SBS
