Have you tried logging on using the domain admin instead of local admin? If you could do this, then just go to computer management and reset the local admin password to something you know.

Not sure why you couldn't use the Domain Admin account to reset it. But here is a tool that could help you plenty on a "local" account.
I stress "local". If it is a member server with a local account it should work. If it is an AD server, it will not.
