The logon name for the RPC Service was accidentally changed.  Now, we cannot login to out Server 2003 machine.  How can I change the logon back remotely?

The Server 2003 machine is the domain server and there is not a backup domain controller in place.

You should be able to use the sc.exe tool.

For example,

sc <server> config <service name> obj= <Account name>

Type sc --help and sc config --help for more info.

Will this work from the command prompt?
sc \Proplus config Remote Procedure Call (RPC) displayname= NT Authority\NetworkService password= ""
