    I have moved my server (Win2k advanced server) from domain to workgroup. After the move, it requred me to logon by using local account. However, my vendor told me that they forgot the local admin password and therefore now no one can logon to the server.

    now I need to logon to the server and dump all important resources (document, source code, database)…etc. I have tried the method “Forgot the Administrator password – Alternate Method – The LOGON.SCR”, but it seems failed because it showed me “Access is denied” when I change the password in the dos prompt.

    So for Win2k advanced server, which method is recommended to be successfully reset the password for local admin? please advise.

    Thanks in advance.
