  • Hi,
    remember to always have second admin account, never only one.
    Use this to reset local admin pass
    You can use  Microsoft tool called Dart to reset admin pass. (This will reset local admin account pass 

    Second Option is 
    Boot From windows server media
    – Press “F10″
    – Type ‘copy D:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe D:\Windows\System32\utilman.exe” (replace driveletter)
    – Reboot and press the utility manager symbol
    – Type ‘net user Administrator *’
    – Enter the password
