I personally have not used this software and it is not cheap. You may want to contact the company regarding SBS 2011.

Do they have the SBS disk that came with the server? You could use that to do the same thing you can the consumer OS and reset it from there. Otherwise, is there a user that has domain admin/administrator access that could reset the password in Active Directory?

I have an ISO that I use to wipe the local admin password and then reset it.  It should be able to handle 2011.

 

 

Here is an article describing the tool:

Assuming you mean the Raid controller, the answer is NO. You need the raid controller drivers in order for the raid configuration to be recognized by whatever operating system your using to boot from. If you are using Windows PE you should be able to use the same drivers as the operating system.  If the system is using Raid 1 you could pull one of the drives and mount it on another system to swap utilmon.exe with command prompt. I would not do anything until your sure they have a good backup.

Rule number 1!

You could try Nordahls PW reset tool
http://www.chntpw.com/download/

It has saved me a lot of times.

It is linux based and might have the required raid drivers included

PS: you might want to check if local administrator account is disabled. If so, the easiest way would be to enable it and reset it to a blank password

Hth!

The server is at home or located at remote location?
