  • Dear Customer,

     

    Based on my research, if you have not other administrator account, there is no Microsoft recommended way to reset the administrative passwords when you are unable to logon to systems. You have to reinstall the operating system.


    Hope the above information helps. If you have any further questions or concerns, please feel free to let me know. I am happy to be of assistance.

     

    Sincerely,

  • You only have one Local and domain Administrator? Do you have other Account with Local or Domain Administrator right?

    If yes, you can logon with that account, and reset password by opening Computer Management for Local Administrator and by opening ADUC for Domain Administrator.

    If not, sorry, please reinstall the server.

  • Hello,

    For the Domain Admin account, i havne't any offical support method to reset password when you are unable to logon to system. However, if your machines isn't domain controller, we can using Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack to reset the Local admin account password. Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack can generate the ERD with locksmiths prog to reset the local admin password.

  • Some workable solutions for recover domain password:

    1. Recover domain password with script.

    • 1. Create a WinPE boot disk.
    • 2. Boot Windows server from WinPE boot disk.
    • 3. Create a password hack script.
    • 4. Edit windows registry offline to make script run when windows server start up.
    • 5. Reboot windows server and login with administrator account.
    • 6. Reset the password of other account with administrator account.

    2. Recover domain password with domain recover password tool. As I know, Windows Password Rescuer  and Spower Windows Password tool work fine with windows server domain password.

    Or you can search to find more domain password tool.
