how do i reset the administrator password on win2k3 werver from windows rescue system?
Posted on 2009-05-06
Our server was hacked and the administrator password reset. I access normally through RDK but now cannot et access. I can reboot the server via a web console and get in to windows rescue system mode, where i can get a command line interface and basic file browsing etc. I need to reset the admin passsword, i have already done the : net user administrator newpassword, which seemed successful but wouldn't let me in. Is it possible to reset or change the admin password via this method, if so what am I doing wrong? Failing this, is it possible to set up a new user and password using windows rescue system?
