Ya you are right. It's a DC.

When I start in safe mode it ask a login. So what can I do in this case?

If you can boot the server in normal mode, the password can be changed very easily. See here: Reset Local Admin password

If not you can use trinity to reset the password

Yes, psexec is a very nice tool. The sysinternals suite is very useful.
