Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Hello,

I assume you have exhausted the possibility of using another user account with administrative permission to logon to the server? And do not have administrative tools loaded on your workstation which would give you access to ADUC? If you have these tools configured on your workstation and have not locked out the admin account, you may be able to reset the admin password this way.

If all else has failed, check out this article. It may help you out.

Good luck!
