reset sbs2011 password which is running on hyper-v RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have a Hyper-v 2008 bare metal hypervisor.

    on top of that I have a SBS2011 server.

    Everything works fine, but the password of the only administrator user has been lost.

    I found tutorials on how to boot with the sbs DVD and go into recovery mode, rename the keyboard program and stuff...

    Unfortunately that does not work for me because, when using Hyper-V remote manager and put the ISO to the SB2011 image, the SBS boots too fast, I don't have the time to reconnect to the SBS2011 through the Hyper-V remote manager and 'hit a key to boot with the DVD (which is actually a mounted ISO)'

    Is there another way to force the sbs2011 VM to boot from the sbs2011 installation ISO ?
