I really hope I've come to the right place. I referred a client to ZT Systems to buy a server for tehir practice. It needed to be shipped and in the door by yesterday 9-5-09 so the It guy could set it up as an application sever that has to be completed by Tuesday, the day after labor day so the vendor for the 3rd party application can setup the server for their app. Thiis a 10k sever for 100 users so I'm assuming you know just how important this could be. Anyway, the sever arrived and when we finally opened last night the OS was installed with a admin account setup but no password has been supplied? I know there are plenty of ways to bypass the login screen and setup a new password in most cases but here is where THE GOOD IS SEPERATED FROM THE BEST in terms of security knowledge. The server is running Windows Server 2008 64 bit, Raid controllers Lsi, so most small apps that will allow you to bypass the login screen don't work when your using Raid controllers and 64 bit version.
Can anyone tell me if there's a way to bypass the 2008 login screen to get to our admin password with this type of hardware setup? It's going to end up a lawsuit if we don't find a way to resolve this. Just in case you're wondering. yes we have tried to contact them in every way possible but have had no luck. So now I am hoping someone has the knowledge to help. Please advise if you can.
