Foolish mistake...looking for the magic solution...
Posted on 2011-03-21
We have a server running MS Server 2003 std for sole use as a portal server with Remote Desktop. For an unknown reason, the server was not reachable through remote desktop, either internally or externally.
We had luck with a similar situation once before by removing the server from the network domain, logging in as a local account, then areattaching. However, this system does not appear to have the same password(s) as the previous system.
Anyway to login? Safe mode, using the install disk, etc? Obviously I could attach drive as a secondary HD in another system to recover data, but I'd really rather not have to go through that if it is avoidable.
