Windows Server 2008R2 Domain Admin Password lost and cannot reset it.
Admin password has been lost.
Have used a program called Windows Password Recovery Tool which does actually reset the "Administrator" password in the AD. This works fine on a server with Administrator as the Admin account but not on 2008R2 which by default disables the Administrator account.
The Util does not work with any other user other than Administrator.
I have looked through EE for a fix but all options point to DSRM and I cannot get the DSRM to show up by pressing F8. When I get a boot menu I only get Safemodes or Normal as an option.
Utlimately the production AD Server is SBS2008R2 and I am just testing the theory before looking at the SBS2008R2 installation.
