If he has an emergency recovery diskette (ERD) of recent vintage, he could boot from the the three diskette set and restore the registry. He should then be able to login with the old Administrator password.

Hey, without utilities, it's pretty tough to get back into an NT box without the password - have them try everything in upper and lower case, and try to get a password cracker from somewhere like L0phtcrack (BE SURE TO use a zero "0"- not the letter "o". Anyway, this is probably too late - but good luck....

Run User Domain Manager and reset a password in the person record.

I've run also in this problem by a customer, where a student install the machine and then go into holydays without leaving the password. What we do then is to repair the sam-database with the rescure disk from a different machine. Hope this will help you.

One of the possible causes of this situation is an attempt to restrict logon to ordinary users by changing default system policy. In this case, you can try to remove policy files using utilities available on www.sysinternals.com (NTFSDOS, for example)...or rebuild your server.
