AD Old Domain and New Domain w/o Admin Rights

By marvinfonacier ·
A computer is joined to a domain that no longer exists. The only user account you have a password for doesnt have administrator rights. How do you gain access to disjoin it from the nonexistent domain in order to join it to a new domain?

Local Administrator

by oldbaritone In reply to AD Old Domain and New Dom ...

Can you boot in Safe Mode and log on as the local administrator? You should be able to put it into a workgroup instead of a domain.

You wouldn't be able to go the other way, but you should be able to detach it from the domain.

Alternatively, reinstall Windows, clean install.
