I’m in my last year of ict.
28th of March I’ve got Windows 2003/2008 Server Exam.
For that exam I need a working 2003 server with exchange.
(full on vmware)
We have to use the vm that we’ve created in the class.
But now i’ve somehow managed to make a typo when changing my password, although i always ONLY use [email protected] or Admin123.
I guess i most have mistyped it 2 times by changing the password.
(there is no problem concerning azerty or qwerty..)
Anyway, this is not a LIVE server, everything is .local and for studying purpose.
But i can’t risk to just create a new one and hope it will work with exchange etc…
I do have a snapshot, but it’s without the complete exchange installation.
I did try this one:
reset domain admin password in windows server 2003 ad
(i cant post links under 5 posts..)
everything goes well untill its says:
“Restart Windows normally, SRVANY will run the NET USER command and reset the domain admin password.”
just before step 3.
SO when i finish adding the key in regedit, i just restart the server normally like the manual says.
I dont think SRVANY can run the net user command because when the server has rebooted it asks for a login..
Or does the net user command run without being logged in?
So, even if the net user command did run without loggin in, i still can’t log in with the new set password which i set in the regedit key.. (which is [email protected])
Also, when i reboot then, i cant get into the F8 menu (choose boot option), i have to revert to my latest snapshot in order to get the F8 function during the boot proces to work again..
If u want i can post screenshots from my register changes, but i think its correct..
So i’m kinda stuck here :s
I really need that virtual machine for my exam..
I hope you can understand my problem, sorry for my bad english!
