hi all,
as a regular user of this forum i need help from you gurus.
here a question

i have a server. with RAID configuration say disk are mirrored. with windows 2003 server installed on it. but i dont know the password of it. there is no other acoount to logon using administrator rights.. how will i recover password from it. considering that disk are SCSI disk.

i know utility i.e Hiren's boot CD. i.e some linux style of reseting the password. but what about SCSI disk. i dont know if i can use the same boot disk to reset the password. i do not want to take risk as if it failed it will be a disaster. or server may crash. next time i may not be able to boot.

or is there any other way. ie. we can attach a new third disk and install OS on it and can access these mirrored disk.
many more ideas are welcome

Well, generally speaking (all I am willing to do without violating our ToS) the password reset shouldn't care what you have as long as it can see/read the os boot partition. At most you might have to configure the correct drivers.
