Hi Jason,

there are several versions of pwdump out there and other tools like Cain
& Abel. A few months back however none of them wa able to dump the PWs
for 64Bit 2003, but none of them rebooted the server. Tested on 4 machines.

I am currently conducting a penetration test and have compromised a Windows 2003 server which is a domain member 
server and have admin privs. I have noticed the system has numerous services which are running through domain 
accounts and some of those accounts are domain admins.

I understand the passwords for the services are stored in the LSA and I would like to dump them. I have tried 
lsadump2 and this just hangs and finally reboots the server. What other tools can I use on W2K3 to dump these 

I would prefer to use something that does not need to be installed with an installer and does not require the server 
to be rebooted if that is possible.

Any help appreciated.
