  • Question

  • Hello,

    Thanks for the administrator password reset in windows server 2008r2. I have tried your solutions but unable to complete the job. Below I have mentioned the step I have followed :

    a) Inserted the original dvd of windows server 2008r2

    b) Choose repair option

    c) selected d:\windows\system32

    d) moved the file utilman.exe to utilman.exe.bak

    e) copied the file cmd.exe to utilman.exe

    f) restarted the computer

    g) After getting the login screen where two users name have appeared Administrator and guest.. here I have pressed windows key + u,, after pressing both the keys it did not fire cmd.exe, instead of that another screen has appeared.

    h) Moreover I have tried to rename the utilman.exe.bak to utilman.exe but the system did not find that file.

    Please guide me in details in this regards

    Thanks in advance
