Following a password reset on a windows 2003 web server for the administrator account I can no longer access the server either remote or local. A previous article had the following answer as the accepted solution, however the link is now not functioning and so need some further assistance. There are several live sites running on the server and so a format of the hard drive is not an option and the server needs to be offline for as little time as possible.
Edit-HTS:If all else fails, have a read of this:
My tut on getting local admin access :) on XP - most of it should be relevant due to the nature of Windows Server 2003.
P.S., make sure you're putting the * in when you reset the password - if you forget, it wont work. If you try and change the password using the reset ulility it may not work - I havn't been able to get it to change a password, just blank it.
I look forward to any assistance you can provice.
