I have a new windows 2012 server (VM) and this server will be our new SQL database server and this server is on the domain now.
I want to set local administrator password, so I went Administrative Tools.
3.Double click on Computer Management.
4.Expand Local Users and Groups.
5.Click on Users.
6.Right click on Administrator. Click on Set Password.
I get a Warning:
Resetting this password might cause irreversible loss of information for this user account. For security reasons, Windows protects certain information by making it impossible to access if the user's password is reset.
The data loss will occur the next time the user log off.
You should use this command only if a user has forgotten his or her password and does not have a password reset disk. If this user has created a password reset disk should use the disk to set the password.
So if I reset the local administrator password will this change the domain administrator password.
