Hi Juan,

Try this.

If the Domain Admin has recently logged into the server, simply run 'dumpcache'.

If you have the Domain Admins hash, then you run John the Ripper or
Cain and Able to crack it.

Follow carefully,

with Cain program running, select cracker--> then highlight MS-cache
hashes --> then select the '+' sign.

this will dump ms-cache on your local pc.

now go into program files/cain and look for cache.lst. open it and
view the format of the captured hash.

compare it to the output of the dumpcahce program.

simply copy your dump cache into the cache.lst in the Cain format.

now open Cain and you will see your captured hash from the domain admin account.

Now you can either brute force it or use the Rainbow table option.


I hope that was clear. Sorry I am in a hurry.

feel free to contact me off line.
