windows 2008 admin password reset

I have done password reset for users who had forgotten Windows 7 password by renaming seth.exe. Now  I have a user with small business single server who has forgotten the password does same apply to it.
I presume it would only work for member server not for DC

I'm not familiar with the seth.exe trick... but I suspect it's essentially the same as utilman.exe.  Reference this blog:
