    I need your help please.

    I have a SBS 2003 server that we can not access as we do not know the admin password. Long story short this is a legit request, it is company property and the current admin is in hospital and unable to answer any questions. If he was able I would ask him for the password.

    I have physical access to the server.

    Update on above. If I can't gain access to the server due to absence of admin password through the front door, then take out the disk, ghost that, copy to another just in case you stuff up, then add that disk to an XP machine, presto, instant access to the data.

    If you are familiar with Linux, you should be able to boot from a Live CD and mount the partitions, and access the data that way.
