Well for one thing you need to be physically at the keyboard, it can not be done remotely unless the manufacturer built into the server a dedicated remote administration IP address.  

 

You do know the Administrators password yes?

 

I'm not exactly comfortable with disclosing the exact application and driver combination needed to breach security on a current operating system.

 

Is the remote management role installed?

Your best option is to log in as the admin on the client you are running pstools on. Be aware that when you have to specifiy the username and password in pstools remotely, and you are not logged into the local client as the admin, those credentials are sent in clear text.

 

Can you connect via Remote Desktop to this server? You should be able to change the server admin password that way, provided the credentials you use with RDP have sufficient privileges.

I would go with this one. I think the remote desktop option should be sought for.
