Whenever I type the administrator password on the server I get a message stating that the password is incorrect even though I know that it is correct.  Whyis this happening and how can I correct it?

Caps problem?  Faulty Keyboard?

Try to type the password into the username field so you can see if the keyboard is messing it up on you.

Another thing you can do is while logged on as any domain admin from a workstation in that domain

net user Username NewPassword /domain

Where username is your domain admin username and newpassword is what that account is supposed to have for a password.
