  • Actually, the forum owners for this forum should clean this up. Administrators cannot scale to 1600 forums across the system, which is why we have the forum owner role. You should post something in the w7itprosecurity forum and w7itproirt forums asking for this help. Let me know if no one replies and I can look into why the forum owners are not doing what they should be, thanks!

    They exists, yes! But, copying the same reply on multiple threads so that such tool will be known (Like a commercial act) is not really acceptable. Also, there is multiple websites where we can find such tools but at least they should not be presented on Technet forums.

    Thank You for understanding.

  • Sysinternals has a password cracking tool.  It's part of DART.  Microsoft provides these tools.

    It's not a violation when you are cracking YOUR OWN SYSTEM.  The only way these tools work if you have physical access.  There's no violation of a code of conduct here, there have been cases where consultants (we call them insultants) who have left on bad terms, changed the password of the server and left the owner without the password.

    The next IT pro coming in needs a password cracking tool to give BACK to the owner control of his own server. 

    We are not violating code of conduct, the first consultant did.

    We are not violating end user licensing.
