    Hi, Hello everyone,

    Im new to this forum. I would like to ask how I can reset the AD admin password on Windows Server 2003.

    So far I have tried Hiren CD Active Password reset tool. It normally reset everything except this one.

    It seems to reset the user password on SAM but when you log in, windows is still asking for password.

    On sever, does it work differently or do I need special tool/software to reset admin password?

    Many thanks in advance.

    Win

    Do you have another admin account? If not, then it would be pretty hard to accomplish. Do you have any documentation or backup info?

    Depends if the server is joined to a domain.
    if not changing it in safe mode is standard procedure, give it a Google
