RE: restore Administrator password

Just an important note: This password reset disk will hose the SAM if the password is already blank.

It probably isn't, or you would have found that out already... but if you haven't, I'd at least try a blank password 
before using the reset disk.

To give you more specific information, the name of the linux bootdisk file
is 'bd040116' this can be loaded onto a floppy. THe program allows you to
reset/change your password without knowing it. If you've had problems with
booting this file on a floopy(like I've had before) you could use a similiar
file that boots from the cd instead called "cd040116". Hope this helps.

Search google.  There is a download you can get and install on a floppy
disk.  It boots up a small version of linux and allows you to over-right
the windows local passwords be replacing the whole hash.

Hi
I am very sorry for stupid question but I need help from you.
How can I restore Administrator password in OS Microsoft Windows 2000
Server. This server is not any domain controler. It is installed as
Standalone.
Do you know any procedure how reset password? I have access to the
server only physical. I can not login there because I do not know
Administrator password (company changed Administrator guy who not told
password for
Administrator)
Thank you very much for your answer and help.
Best regards,
Filip
