    Hi guys !

    Im new to this forum ! Hope i will do good :)

    I have 5 years managing this server and no problems at all.

    1 week ago they(workers) called me cuz they had probs with the server.
    I went there asap and tried to log in but it says wrong username/password.
    No one except me knew the password so no 1 has changed it.
    I tried to enter into it with remote conection from another PC but still asking for password .I enter them and it says wrong again.
    The product is activated and well functional but i cant get into it to copy the data. :S I remove 1 of the HDD into the server and its empty while it is in the server it has data in it :S .

    I had installed a keylogger into that and there is no activity for 8 month's.
    :coffee:


    I MUST copy the data cuz the owners want them. But i cant do it if i dont login into that.

    Any suggestion?

    Thank you in advance.

    Do i need to do those steps 1 by 1 or is anything faster to do ?
    Requirements
    1. Local access to the Domain Controller (DC).
    2. The Local Administrator password."" (i have it but it dsnt work thats why i need to reset it or find it )
    3. Two tools provided by Microsoft in their Resource Kit: SRVANY and INSTSRV.

    If that server isn't a domain controller a simple local password reset will do.
    If it's a domain controller and you don't have a way to log in then yes, you need to do the additional steps to get the Active Directory login back.
