Obtaining information about a server in a workgroup
Posted on 2008-06-25
Hi guys hope u r well and can assist.
Im sure some of you guys might have been in the following situation before and im hoping you have.
We have a situation at work in our company whereby we need to get information about a particular server that is not on our domain, is ours however, and is in a workgroup.
We have the ip address and believe it is a windows box but not entirely sure.
I need to be able to log on to this machine.
If I do a UNC eg. \\<ip address\....it brings up a dialog.
We dont have current credentials to log on, but I need a way to "break" in.
Any suggestions greatly appreciated on how we might for example retrieve the local admin password and account as this is critical.
