    I got myself a new server the other week.
    I want something to put 2008 on for jollies.
    So I managed to find one, almost new, nevery really been used, lovely.

    The only thing the guy couldn't do is tell me anything about what was on it, because he'd never used it.

    Not to matter, tidy deal all the same.
    So I switches it on this weekend. Server 2003 (64). Tidy.
    Administrator's password?

    Let's see.
    'password' no.
    'PASSWORD' no.
    'blank' no.
    'P@ssw0rd' no.
    'pa55word' no.
    'admin' no.
    'administrator' no.

    I could go on.
    So I tried a couple of freebie tools from the Interweb that just had me going in circles.
    So after a fruitless bank holiday weekend I resorted to loginrecovery - a quite scarily brilliant tool which did the job in 5 minutes but cost me £25.

    And what was it?
    Yup.

    'Password'

    I feel ever so ashamed.

    Heh, yeah but you never know.

    It could have been pAssword, paSsword, pasSword etc.

    Glad it's all sorted now.

    This :)

    You never actually know whats been left on a machine, it could be reporting back all sorts of information (or be a bot).

    I always blank a machine when I get it (laptops, servers, workstations etc).
