Recovering or changeing Win 2003 admin password
Posted on 2007-08-04
Hi , i read other posts on changing/recovering domain admin password , i am able to boot in to directory services restore mode , i downloaded SRVANY and INSTSRV from microsft and used the instructions from petri , manually following,what i noticed was when i did this and rebooted normally i was getting a error saying certain service did not start so i thought it was the password recovery service, so i downloaded the script from petri and ran this but i am still getting the service not started error when i try to log in normally with the password i changed to ? it's not letting me logon. the new password works ok when i log in hje directory services restord mode F8,
has anyone got any ideas cheers or is it a server rebuild :-( thanks
PS this is a test server and domain/network i use for testing and studying. This problem seemed to occur when i was messing about with Group policys , i know for a fact that i did change the log on locally and the local password for certain machines on my network,
Is there any way to reset GPO's without knowing the domain admin password. Thanks again !!
