filtered supervisor rights

By efrahm ·
I have two objects in our tree to which no one has rights. Even supervisor rights have been filtered by a previous admin. I have the ability to see them, but not to delete or change. Is there a utility or TID covering this?

Two words: BACK DOOR!

This is a situation where you need to be the ADMINISTRATOR of the Network Directory Services... Log on as the ROOT ADMINISTRATOR and you will be able to modify these objects.

Good Luck!

No - YOU as an adminitrative USER will not have the correct rights for this. You need to log in as the ROOT user that is first set up when installing NT. There is an ADMINISTRATOR on every network that is GOD above GOD. It is only used in emergencies like this one and there IS an account for this whether you think there is or not. You need to find out what the ROOT password is to log on as ADMINISTRATOR.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: With NT 4 all you have to do is log into a domain server (any server attached to the domain) as the domain administrator account. That account would be the first administrator account setup on the Primary Domain Controller in an NT 4 domain. As for Windows 2000 you would have to log into any Windows 2000 server setup in the domain as any domain administrator account that has been given full control access to Windows 2000 Active Directory. To access from any server inthe domain you would have to have Active Directory Services installed on the particular server. W2K is different from NT 4 in that NT 4 uses WINS to recognize servers in the domain. W2K uses DNS so you have to ensure that your servers are all listed in the DNS table for the particular zone you want access to.

Novell also has a administrator that can be logged in as. Novell has several back doors that are generally set up in the beginning that just aren't necessarily dispatched to all of the techs. You may need to research this a little.

Things to try:

As Supervisor, move up the tree and give yourself rights to the parent directory(s). If you have full rights in the parent you should at least be able to delete the object, and you can probably manipulate its rights.

The owner of the object should be able to change rights regardless of other rights.

The Supervisor should be able to change the owner regardless of other rights.

Good luck.

If you want to spend money, try MAKESU from Dreamlan (www.dreamlan.com). It's about $100 or so.

There is a free demo version which would suit you IF you could crack the password (it's randomly generated and you aren't told what it is).
