    SolvedAfter a months downtime on my server I realize I forgot the password to my server.
    Is there any way around that or is reinstall my only option?
    That really woud put me in trouble since I finally got it to work the way I wanted, and that wasn't easy.
    I'm a total beginner at server OS-s...

    So please, If any know a way around this. Please help!

    Reinstalling and retaining the settings and installed programs/roles woud be an option aswell, if that's possible...

    /Rab.

    Thank you Tito for that useful tool. Solved my problem.
