SBS2011 Permissions issue

Someone had reset permissions across the board on SBS2011. This caused two issues.

1. Reset all mailbox limits to 2GB - not a problem, easily fixable.

2. Knocked down all administrator accounts off of domain level. Now there are no admin accounts that I can use for domain level access.

How do I get a domain level account back? Do I need to do get into AD restore mode? Not sure how to get in with admin access and restore the domain level permissions.

You should be able to log in with the domain administrator account to a DC and adjust the domain admins group membership.  If that doesn't work, you will need to restore at least 1 object that was in the domain admins group previously and hope it restores the membership as well.
