Really quick stupid question here guys.

I recently setup a small business server and the Domain Admin account has been locked out.

When you first set it up the local administrator account that it sets up am I right in saying that the username would be administrator all lowercase, I need to get in there to re enable the domain account

Domain Controllers (including SBS) don't have local admin accounts. If you didn't create another domain admin account, you'll have to wait out the timer.

Yep. And windows has a concept of a lockout duration. The account is unlocked after the timer has expired as no new logon attempts reset the timer. The default is, as I recall, 30 minutes. So the best option is to wait it out.
