Lost Local Administrator Password on Windows 2008 R2 (Standard OS)
Posted on 2011-09-21
We've lost the local administrator account password on our Windows 2008 R2 server. No problem to access the domain admin account, although it doesn't have local admin rights on the server itself. It's come to light because we need to do something low level with a printer installed locally at the server.
Any ideas how we might recover this, either by using 3rd party software or perhaps elevating the permissions of the domain admin account to then allow us to change the local admin password?
Thanks in advance
