sbs 2011 with Windows 2008 R2

I replaced a SBS2003 with a new server sbs2011, I used the same server name and domain name
when I setup this new sbs 2011 I created an admin account joeadmin per wizards request.
I created all the users including exchange mailboxes new, I wanted a clean new setup it only has 8 users
created all the shares new as well
everything is working fine, I had to rejoin all the Windows 7 PCs

One think did go wrong, I have one other server, Windows 2008 R2 is hosts a LAN database
this server was on the old domain and has only one account domain administrator from the sbs2003

after rebooting this server I'm trying to log in and it will not log me in, I tried the original administrator account and the new joeadmin account, all I get is "Your account has been disabled. Please see your system administrator"

please advice?

I can hook back up the old sbs2003 and then try logging into the server 2008, if I do and it lets me in what should I change?

thanks

Follow episode 105's instructions to change the local admin password on that server:

Note that the instructions can also be used to recover a Domain Admin account password!

If it is an additional DC on the old domain, demote it using dcpromo. Then remove it from the domain so that it is a stand alone server. After that add it to the new domain.

Then just remove it from the domain, and after that add it to the new domain.

Ended up putting back the old 2003 server then was able to log into the 2008 server and remove it from domain. Then I put back the new SBS 2011 and joined the 2008 server
