"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

wondering if this help based on steps to "reset" instead...otherwise this is a support call or have to search through the admin common machine to access the central sole for asg, it may just be the case of the password is stored inside hist notepad or txt...http://forum.visionapp.com/showthread.php?tid=6123&pid=22572#pid22572

not that I understand it can be revealed though there is past stating maybe

maybe better or the forum support and call on to them instead as I doubt this is public info and something that can be shared openly

Nirsoft Network Password Recovery- recovered one or two network passwords, but not the administrator password and only if it was stored on system for the current user.
JohnBusiness Consultant (Owner)Commented:
If Nirsoft did not work, you probably cannot recover the passwords. So you have lost the passwords for 50 servers??  Is that true?
GSG_TECHOAuthor Commented:
Yes, lost over 50 passwords and I do not want to change the administrator password  for fear of a cascade affect, so I'll start from scratch and set up new  servers and gradually migrate everything.
JohnBusiness Consultant (Owner)Commented:
Are you sure you cannot contact the prior administrator and get the info. This is bad news.
GSG_TECHOAuthor Commented:
He passed away,  I didn't wont put that out there but that's what really happened. I have contacted a few consultants to  help me thru it all, so we'll get thru it, he just didn't save that password anywhere but Ill keep you all posted.
btanExec ConsultantCommented:
thanks, indeed it is not poss if the tools shared is not viable as it means there is backdoor which it shouldn't. And since he has no backup or even wallet to safekeep his password - probably the SOP is to ensure recovery in event of non-presence
GSG_TECHOAuthor Commented:
Yes, the practice was to simply store all backdoor company/management and administrator credentials to  usb encrypted lockbox that would be stored in two different safe deposit boxes accosted two cities -box A and box B. We now see it's a practice that I apparently only adhered too.

In the passed, I was able image  a server 2003 w/Exchange 2003, converted it to a vhd , mounted it in virtual box and then cycled thru potential password but in the lab/controlled environment, so I will revisit that option after I gain  better control of the current situation, but that will be months from now.

Thanks

noted meanwhile let's us know if you chanced upon any findings ... thanks ... otherwise looks like beyond what can be done unless their tech suppt "really" has a mean to show and recover in your case..
GSG_TECHOAuthor Commented:
mounted vhd image but none of the potential passwords worked and no response from asg yet, still plugging at.
btanExec ConsultantCommented:
quite difficult then to recover then...
GSG_TECHOAuthor Commented:
Yes, we/consultant team are mapping out a plan to migrate and upgrade to a hybrid office 365 and possibly azure environment since we have access to existing servers- the server count is closer to 70 now- I found more live virtuals
Thanks
btanExec ConsultantCommented:
Thanks for sharing - can be a long way then but better off sticking with appliance that has no tech suppt and tried the other VM, hope it perserves and get the login right
