Hi all,
Had a 2003 server crash.  Got it backup but discovered I did not have local
password to use to do a chkdsk.
My question is now that the server is backup how do I logon as local
administrator to test my password.  When I log off as domain administrator
the drop down box to logon does not have an option to logon as local admin.
It only shows my domain.
Do I need to restart the server and hit a function key or something?  I just
wanted to test the local admin password so that next time I need it I will
know what it is.
Thanks in advance for any help on this.
Sher
