server 2008 can't logon - trust relationship

I have a 2008 server that had a problem. A tech did last known configuration.  I can no longer  log into the server. When plugged into the network. I get the error "trust relationship has been lost." Whenever this happened to workstations before, I unplug the network cable and can then login with cached credentials. That is not working this time.

When I unplug the cable, I get the error "There are currently no logon servers available to service this logon request. " 

I thought I knew the local administrator password but that is not working.

Any way I can log into this server so I can take it off the domain and put it back on?

Only a few options I can think of..

1. Try all credentials that you think may be cached into memory.
2. Find another employee that may know the local Admin password.
3. Reset the password with something like Microsoft Diagnostics and Recovery Toolset (MSDaRT) 6.5 (has a Locksmith wizard).

MSDaRT seems top be the solution however I can't find where to download it. I find lots of information but no download.

Unfortunately MSDARt is part of the Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack, which is only available for volume licensed customers and Technet/MSDN subscribers.
