Okay, new problem. My Domain Controller is down, and as such, it's normal that users can't login to active directory, right? Now, there's a user who can't login no more using his active directory credentials, I think they might have expired out of the cache.
Question: Is there a painless way to make sure that the user can login, and keep his active directory settings? I know there's a profile folder on the disk, so there should be a way to keep them, which I will inspect later on.
Then, if I need administrative rights, do you people know of a tool to safely reset administrator password on a machine I'm supposed to have access to? Nobody has any idea whatsoever about the Admin password here, and I'm already under a lot of pressure.
Thank you all in advance.
Oh, missing information about the workstation: Windows XP 64. Hardware is irrelevant here, is it not?
