Do you have a backup account with admin rights to the server?

No i do not,
do you know how to see with CMD who has administrator rights on the server?
i have used C:\Users\Jon>net group "domain admins" /domain
and i only get "administrator"

So you lost the administrator password or it is not working?  I thought the username for SBS was serveradmin by default and usually the administrator account is disabled.

bah, please edit your post and change your stuff in there (servername/domain etc). Dont want to release those publicly.  There is a long work around to reset the password,  I would make sure you have valid backups before proceeding.

Can try this:

This helped me.

First challenge was getting a bootable disc to see the RAID.

I used this disc:  http://www.pogostick.net/~pnh/ntpasswd/bootdisk.html  ( cd110511.zip)

Boot and cleared password for administrator and ensured enabled.

boot into DSRM

logged in using   .\administrator , and blank password

Followed the same link   : http://jmcglynn.blogspot.com/2011/03/sbs-2011-and-locked-out-domain.html

**Important** remember to set a password for your DSRM admin , because you cannot log in normal mode as that user with a blank password ***

The rest of the scripting work, changed the password successfully... logged in as domain admin!
