Local Admin account restore...

By mark.chalik ·
I have a situation here? One of our admins left company and I inherited one of the test machines.
He renamed local admin account to his name and I don?t know password. Account disabled.
I recently put this server on the rack and join lab domain. As soon it happened my account on this machine become a regular user with appropriate rights.
I have to enable his account (somehow). Please help!!

Bypass security

by exeron In reply to Local Admin account resto ...

On that normal account you have, open up cmd and type in:

at "time" /interactive "cmd.exe"

where time is 1 min after your current time, so if its 2:30 you put 2:31 e.g.

at 2:31 /interactive "cmd.exe"

Wait till a new command promt opens up and then "cd ../". Now go to taskmanager, if you can and kill explorer.exe or if you cant, type in "taskman" in the cmd promt that opened. Now you have killed that, in the new CMD type in "explorer.exe" and new explorer will open with superuser privaliges (System account). So just go and reset the admin password and your done.

Hello,
I tried doing what you said and when I typed in the secod command

Thank you.

Domain

by Kjell_Andorsen In reply to Local Admin account resto ...

You mentioned that this machine was on a lab domain. I would have someone with Domain admin privileges for the domain the machine is on go in and make your account a local admin. That should be easy enough.
