Administrator password in WHS 2011 stopped working RRS feed

  • Question

  • Very strange, my administrator password is not being accepted by the server anymore. I am 100% sure that I type it correctly in the remote desktop and dashboard screens. I've even tried copying from notepad. Would it be possible that somebody has hacked my account? If so is there a way to reset the password now? I have a few other users created but none of them is administrator on the server nor has remote desktop rights...

    Any hints?

  • In the meantime I've tried to logon directly to the console but my password didn't work neither. So I made a decision to reinstall the WHS (after not successful restore from backup - most probably due to missing USB 3.0/external hard disk drivers). Still have no clue what was the cause of this changed password... maybe some malware?
