I forgot my windows server 2008 domain admin password, and I cannot login my server computer with other accounts. This administrator is the only account with administrator privilege. I try to use Chntpw and Ophcrack to reset or recover the admin password, how neither of then work. Chntpw can detect the windows, but it cannot reset the lost password. Ophcrack fail to found my windows 2008 system, and it cannot do nothing for me. I want to know whether Spower Windows Password Reset Tool works on my 2008 server.

    Chntpw cannot work for windows server 2008, because it cannot read the domain user account from the registry. Domain users are not stored on the registry as windows 7, and vista.
