Not able to login after server build by MDT 2007 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have build a server 2003 machine with the help of MDT 2007 lite touch installation. During the installation an auto login account executed the entire installation. After Successfully installed, ctrl+del+Enter comes but i dont have login account details of new machine and server still a standalone server. I believe the login account credentials will be MDT image. Please suggest.

  • "ctrl-alt-del"

    It is not necessarily true that the login account credentials will be in the MDT image, it is possible that the user typed in the credentials during deploy time. However, it could be present on your server in the CustomSettings.ini file.

    Best thing to do is to find out *who* setup the machine, and what password they used. If they don't recall, then re-install the OS again. 

    There are techniques that an administrator can use to recover a password on a machine you have physical access to. Search the internet for that information if necessary.

    Finally, Get off of Windows Server 2003. ASAP. Server 2003 is bad news.
