We are unable to log into a clients 2003 SB Server. The Domain admin password is not working. Can only assume they had a password expiry set.

There are no other accounts with domain admin rights.

How can I log into the server?

This website:   http://www.pcloginnow.com/
has a free downloadable tool (PCLoginNow 2.0) that will reset your admin password to allow login.

It is an ISO file that can be burned to a CD, DVD or bootable flashdrive...
Just boot to it & follow the instructions...

I use it all the time for people that forget their passwords!
