A mailicious individual somehow logged into our domain controller and changed the domain administrator password and administrator account username. Currently, we discovered what the domain admin username is but still cannot log into the domain controller. There are no domain admins. All domain admins were removed from membership. Is there a way to log into the server and not have to rebuild a new one?  There is no full backup of the DC.
