Reset Forgotten Active Directory Administrator Password

When an Active Directory administrator password is forgotten, it can be reset using a number of different methods. One popular method is to use a tool called Kon-Boot.

Kon-Boot is a tool that allows you to bypass the password authentication process and gain access to a computer or server. This can be useful if you forget your password or if you need to gain access to a system that you do not have the password for.

Once you have Kon-Boot installed on a USB drive, you can boot from the USB drive and select the "Kon-Boot" option. This will bypass the password authentication process and allow you to access the system.

Once you have accessed the system, you can change the administrator password by going to the "Control Panel" and selecting "User Accounts". From here, you can select the "Change Password" option and enter the new password.

If you are unable to remember the administrator password, you can also reset it using the "net user" command. This command will allow you to change the password for the account.

Once you have changed the password, you can then log into the system using the new password.

If you are still having trouble resetting the password, you can contact Microsoft support for assistance.

There are a number of other methods that can be used to reset a forgotten password, but Kon-Boot is one of the easiest and most effective methods.
