reset Windows 2003 Small Business Server admin password
Posted on 2010-11-19
I have had a virus infection on a Windows 2003 Small business server.
I can reboot to AD restore mode and have shifted all the virus my AV scans will find. I have pratted about a bit and even tried a restore but for some reason the Backup Exec program will not catalogue a tape.
I have googled and used the instsrv and srvany solution but for some reason this is not working either. It runs a service that resets the admin password to a predefined one. ( yes I waited a few mins for all services to start )
I really do not want to have to do a system rebuild and wondered if any one has any further ideas. I see there is a piece of software by a company called Elcom that claims to be able to do it.
Please help if you can.
