I have an issue I'm hoping some of you gurus might be able to help with
and since it uses linux, it's only slightly off topic...I think. ;)
I have friend with a w2k3 server that I need to be able to log into as
admin, but we don't have the password. I have tried some of the tools,
such as "Offline NT Password & Reg Editor"
(http://home.eunet.no/~pnordahl/ntpasswd/), but they all mount the
filesystem RO because it wasn't shutdown in a clean manner.
Unfortunately, the only account on the server is the admin account, so
the only way I can shut it down is by killing power.
Anybody run into this before? Is there better a linux tool I can use
that will allow me to force a mount?
I've used these tools before with 100% success as long as I was able to
log in and shutdown clean.
