Windows Server 2008 has many new features included that system administrators of small and large companies will enjoy. <br /> <br /> Many use Windows 2008 server as a workstation.That means A group of computers and devices on a network that are administered as a unit with common rules and procedures.And the host computer manage these computers through its admin account and password.<br /> <br /> If you have lost windows 2008 server local admin password, I think it is easy for you to recover the password.But what if you have lost windows domain password? Things will get more tricky and all of the computers in the domain paralyze.These passwords also called AD password.Before solving your password problem, you need to know what is Active Directory Domain Controller.<br /> <br /> <b>What is Active Directory Domain Controller?</b><br /> <br />A domain controller is a server that is running a version of the Windows Server operating system and has Active Directory Domain Services installed.<br /> <br /> When you install Windows Server on a computer, you can choose to configure a specific server role for that computer. When you want to create a new forest, a new domain, or an additional domain controller in an existing domain, you configure the server with the role of domain controller by installing Active Directory Domain Controller (AD DS).<br /> <br /> There is the diffence bettwen Domain and local. A Windows Server domain is a logical group of computers running versions of the Microsoft Windows operating system that share a central directory database. A user may be granted access to a number of computer resources with the use of a single username and password combination.<br /> <br /> A Domain Controller allows password authentication throughout a network. What this means is that your password is checked on the central server no matter which machine you log in from. A Domain Controller can also control access to files and directories which can be setup so users have access to all their files no matter which machine they log in from. This also makes adding and removing users among other things much easier as all that is required is a change on the Domain Controller itself rather than every machine on a network.<br /> <br />If you have lost this domain administrator password (also called AD password), it will be a tricky thing.However, Windows Password Key Enterprise can allow you to reset domain administrator password.<br /> Here is the steps to reset Windows server domain password<br /> <br /> Step 1: Download and install Windows Password Key Enterprise in any available computer.<br /> <img src="shalakate.jpg" /> Step 2: Run the software and insert a blank CD or USB Flash Drive to computer.<br /> Step 3: Select Domain Administrator and choose CD/DVD or USB Flash Drive<br /> Step 4: Click Burn to begin bootable disk creation.<br /> Step 5: Insert the newly created CD/USB Flash Drive to your locked computer , but remember you need to set the bios setup , make sure the computer to boot from CD or USB.<br />If you don't know how to set BIOS, take a look this tutorial.<br /> <a href="http://www.lostwindowspassword.com/how_it_works/bios_setting_for_cd.htm">http://www.lostwindowspassword.com/how_it_works/bios_setting_for_cd.htm</a><br /> <br />Step 6: And then you can recover your Domain admin password<br /> <br />Now you can log on your domain admin account and reset a new password.<br />Note: This can also work in Windows Server 2000,2003 <br /> cc

Cant Log on my com. LOST PASSWORD.


This comes from Yahoo but the last time I recovered a lost pass I hooked the drive up as slave on another machine and used a program to search for the pass on the old drive.

Method 1: Take a rest, and try hard to remember the forgotten password

Sometimes, human being is a little weird. You won’t get the thing that you urgently need. So have a coffee, take a snap or even come back after a few days, you may found that you suddenly ‘remember’ your Windows password.

Method 2: Try No Password Administrator Login Backdoor

In Windows XP (not Windows Vista as Administrator account is not enabled by default), there is built-in Administrator user account, that has administrative credentials, enabled by default, and without any password to protect the account from been access. If you didn’t change this Administrator’s password, then try to sign in to Windows XP without password.

Method 3: Reset password from another user account with administrator credentials

If you cannot log on to Windows by using a particular user account, but you can log on to another account that has administrative credentials, follow these steps on how to do the trick:

Log on to Windows by using an administrator account that has a password that you remember. You may need to start WinXP in safe mode.
Click Start, and then click Run.
In the Open box, type “control userpasswords2′, and then click OK.
Click the user account that you forgot the password for, and then click Reset Password.
Type a new password in both the New password and the Confirm new password boxes, and then click OK.
Method 4: LOGON.SCR password reset trick

LOGON.SCR changing administrator or domain admin password hack works on Windows NT 4.0 and some versions of Windows 2000. The simple trick uses Cmd.exe as screen saver that triggered by system when idle, allowing users to access to command prompt to change password.

Method 5: Do-It-Yourself (DIY) third party recovery tool

There are a lot of tools and utilities that can be downloaded and used to recover, reset, retrieve or reveal existing password. These password reset or retrieval utilities, free or paid, are usually a Linux boot disk or CD that able to comes with NT file system (NTFS) drivers and software that will read the registry and rewrite the password hashes, or can brute force crack the password for any user account including the Administrators. The advantage is that there is no fear of leaking your password to outsiders, while the process requires physical access to the console and a floppy or CD drive, depending on which tool you choose. And it’s not easy, although it always work!

Offline NT Password & Registry Editor - Available as bootdisk or bootable CD, Offline NT Password and Registry Editor works to change or reset password of any users on Windows NT 3.51, NT 4, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Vindows Vista 32 and 64 bit. It can also detect and offer to unlock locked or disabled user accounts.
