I disabled my windows 2008 hyper v vm admin account.  I can go to my main server, and login using a local account and a network account that I added.    I can't add those users to a remote desktop  group without admin.  I can't add admin without the admin account.  How do I get around this?

If it's joined to a Domain, use the Domain admin. If not, re-enable your disabled account using the famous bootdisk: http://pogostick.net/~pnh/ntpasswd/ - it can not only reset Passwords but also enable accounts.

Only way I know of, other than suggested above, is to use another account that is apart of the admin or enterprise groups. You can also use power scripts like these shown here but to use these you will have to be an admin user

Thanks, I tried going to the domain controller and managing the computer from there, but it would not connect.

I don't have any users that are part of the admin group.  I disabled all accounts except for one local account and one domain account.  I can login with them, but I can't do any admin functions.

So what - are you done with trying the boot disk, yet? It's a solution.

If you do have 1 domain account that should work. Are you familiar with powershell or do you need some help to get it started?
