Hello,

I removed a Windows 2003 Server from the domain and I cannot login locally because I cannot remember what is the password. Is there any way to reset it? I tried 2 programs and but they were looking for scsi drivers for the disks.
Or is there any way to make it rejoin the domain? That way I can log in as the domain administrator and reset the password myself.

Thanks

I finally managed to get the password with the help of a former IT person who used to work here but thank you for your fast responses!
