The tale of a lost domain password

2011/06/09

The setup:

– A Windows 2008 R2 server running Exchange 2010

The problem:

– The Domain Administrator’s Password was changed and then forgotten.

So now we are completely locked out of the system. To make things worse, the Offline Windows Password and Registry Editor could not identify the SCSI controller.

The solution:

I bought Active@ Boot Disk and reset the Local Administrator Password (that was gone to oblivion too). Next I booted into “Directory Restore Mode” and followed Petri’s instructions.

Problem solved.
