Hyper-V Server 2008 R2 - Admin password hack.

reactionz used Ask the Experts™

I have just removed my host hyper-v server from the old domain and was going to add it to a new one. I was pretty sure the machine was setup with our usual local admin password but its not.

Anyway I can get back into this machine?

if you don't remember setting up a local admin password

then when you get to the login screen , in the username field "computername\administrator" and leave the password field blank and click the arrow to logon, it might give you the oppurtunity to set a new password.
You can reset/enable the local administrator password using the ERD commander software
