Need help with a password recovery issue
Posted on 2006-06-06
We have a Windows 2000 server with a user profile in which we do not know the password. This user is no longer employed with us and before they left there was supposed to be a verification that we had the correct password. Unfortunately this verification was faulty and it was incorrectly determined we had the password. The problem comes with the users workstation. The password is the same for local workstation as it is for the server. If we reset the server password, we will be locked out of the box. There are also likely some critical files in the users secure folder on the local workstation.
So, what we really need to do is find out what the user's password is on the server so that we can then use that same password to logon to the users workstation to recover the files. We of course have all the administrator logons and passwords on the server. It's just a regular user account we need the password for
What are our options?
Thanks in advance!
