I read at:

that it should be possible to dump all passwords from a Domain Controller and crack those hashes later on with diffrent tools.

i tried that in our testlab and even as Domain Admin i just get:

Pwdump -r
Access Denied

the queston is, does it not work anymore or do i use the wrong commands and tools ?

whats the exact comand line for pwdump, to get the hashes ?

Hard to say that EE doesn't help. It is based on individuals devoting their spare time as a volunteer.
E.g. I have been out of the country for three days, so could not follow up this question.
