How to change Administrator password for server 2008 R2

Hi there, I want to change the Administrator on Server 2008 R2 and I don't see the usual options. I'm doing it via remote desktop and we don't have a screen on the server.

Does that make a difference?

"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.

use windows security option available in start menu near log out option or go to cmd and use "net user administrator" cmd

As suggested, you can use Windows Security, Net User, or you can open computer management and go to the Users and Groups section and change it there.

Ctrl + Alt + End will bring up the same screen as it would do if you pressed Ctrl + Alt + Del locally - there is an option there for Change Password.

Thanks Markus... this was the exact solution.

That was ANOTHER solution - it sounds like you didn't want to try the others offered?
Mark DamenERP System ManagerCommented:
If you were doing it on a local PC, that's how you would do it as a user - surely the same way on a remote session is most convenient.
