Domain Controller BMR - Password? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello, 

    We are migrating to DPM 2016 slowly and to test to make sure we have got it all working we are attempting to recover one of our DC's via BMR to another server (that is not network connected) but at the last bit (i think) we are prompted to enter the System Recovery Options - local user password. We are only given the username "Administrator"and any of our common local admin type passwords are incorrect. Can't go any further than that and not able to access CMD to change a password!

    Facts and "stuff":

    DPM: 2016 with all updates running on server 2016 (all updated)

    BMR: yesterdays copy

    Protected server: 2008 R2 (all updates installed)

    Drives: Two HHD's in excess of all requirements (e.g. 320Gb + 320Gb being restored on to 1Tb + 750Gb)
