I have a machine running Windows Server 2003.
While reconfiguring the IP configuration, it froze and now I am unable to remote access it because I don't know what IP address it has and it is not getting an IP from DHCP.
So far my options are:
- Reset the system - don't want to do this, I will lose some important stuff
- Mount the drive on another computer under linux and try to recover data and/or repair the ip configuration
- Blind login and set the machine to use dhcp
I was wondering if anyone could give me any advice on options 2 and 3
On option 2, where is the ip address information stored under windows, and could I just simply change it?
Option 3, anyone have any advice for this, or know if a usb to vga adapter will work without installing any drivers so I don't have to do it blind?
Thanks in advance
