Local admin password

Ibm Xseries 220 p3-1ghz 128mb tower
March 8, 2010 at 19:21:14
Specs: Windows 2003 server, 2G
Trying to find out the local password for the server, the server is a DC and I can login to the domain, but when I log off there is not option for logon to (local or this computer)
HP told me I need to find out the local admin password and user name to get into one of the System management Home software installed on the server.

Once converted to a DC there is no local admin.

Call Hp and get a different tech. That one didn't know what he was talking about

You ever convert a server to a DC?
Did the administator password change from when you logged in before the DC conversion to afterward?

The answer is no.

uninstall and reinstall the HP software if you can't get into it.

I told the HP guy there was no login locally, he told me to ask Microsoft.
I think I will reinstall the HP management software and see what happens

Does that mean if I need to go into recovery console the password is the same as my domain admin password?

Dear wanderer!

Local administrator will be there.When you want to recovery your system password with the help of Offline NT Password and Registry editor you required not a domain administrator password you required local system administrator password,only when you login into Active directory system in GUI mode it does not appear.

Dear kiwi_hk!

You can reset your password blank with the help of Offline NT Password and Registry editor try it.

best of luck
