BOY! do I need help. Some low-life hacked into my server and changed the Admin password, effectively locking me out. The server is now offline, but I still cannot get in. To top it all off, the drives are on a RAID array. I have built a Bartpe cd with utils that allow me to do an NT p/w reset, but without the raid drivers, it cannot see the drives. I've tried a couple of other methods, same problem. Can anyone tell me how to build a bootdisk that will see the raid array and allow me to reset the admin p/w?

Try looking at this website: http://home.eunet.no/pnordahl/ntpasswd/

It has a password editing program and may be compatable with your RAID array (assuming you have the drivers and such handy)

IMPORTANT: read the documentation thoroughly before attemping anything. Also, you release BC, me, and the guy who made this program should anything go wrong (so there! :thumbsup: )
