I have a customer who changed the password on their Windows Small Business Server 2003 and cannot remember it. I have password crackers for XP & Vista, but I don't think they'll work on SBS 2003. Any ideas?

I don't suppose there are any other accounts that are in the domain admins group if so use one of those accounts to login and change it. If not you can attempt this but make sure you have a good backup first and also make sure you change the password on any services that use the administrator accounter after changing it.
