Happy to help you, btw the reason it worked is because you were SYSTEM on
the DC, by issuing getsystem.

 Thank you all for your assistance.  Let me tell you what I did to get this
to work (accidentally).

I had a Domain Admin account, so I logged into the DC.  I didn't have any
sort of exploit for this box, so I uploaded and ran a meterpreter payload
(unchecking the limited privs box under "run as").  Then from my Metasploit,
I opened the session (exploit/multi/handler).  I used getsystem to elevate
my privs, I migrated to explorer.exe and ran "run metsvc -A."  I then closed
out my session and logged off RDP.

From the new session, I could now run "hashdump" proper and dump all domain
credentials.  Not sure why that worked, but it did.

Thank you for everything.  Cracking now...

Hi Matt,
to get the domain users hashes you can try to upload gsecdump (
http://www.truesec.com/PublicStore/catalog/Downloads,223.aspx) to the
Domain Controller and execute it with system privileges (-a) or if It
doesn't work you might have some antivirus blocking you.
In that case you can try to stop the AV service or if you don't have the
privileges you might try to use the tools *Instrsrv.exe and **Srvany.exe
from *windows resource kit (
and install your batch file e.g (sc stop <antivirus service>) as a service.

Interesting.  That technique obtained the Administrator and Guest hashes.
 There are other users on the box and not all of them are domain accounts.
 Still it was better then what I had been getting.

Why would this be failing?  It seems as if MS has changed something to
fight back.  Also, I've been unable to open a shell on the box, once
I've elevated my privs to system: execute -f cmd.exe -c -t .

Any pointers would be helpful.  Thanks.

Try "run hashdump" to use the registry method, this only supports local
accounts and not domains right now.
