Hacked?

The issue is a Server 2003 server that has had the administrator password changed... thus no one knows how to get into it via the domain.  By "via the domain" I mean that the option to select "This Computer" from the "Log on to" is missing...

If you click on the drop down arrow for the "Log on to" dropdown box, ONLY the domain is listed.

Any thoughts on how I can proceed?

have you tried just logging in as an administrator through remote desktop?

also is this a domain controller?  if so there will be no dropdown

Wow... never noticed that the dropdown on a DC only contained the domain...

Cannot remote in either... so, this is probably just a "hack the password" issue...
