    Locked Up Machine (SP1)

    Hi,

    I've just inherited some machines, mine to do with as I will as long as I back up the data ... seems reasonable!

    My problem is that someone did a fairly thorough job of locking them down and, what with their use of a domain which I am not part of, I can't create a local administrator user (especially since I've now configured one of them as a workgroup machine). I wanted to change the network setting so it became a DHCP client but couldn't ... got round that by adding an alternative IP address to my server. However I still can't get access to all normal areas of the hard drive because I lack the permissions.

    Any ideas? Personally I think I'm going to have to try l0phtcrack :-(

    Do you know if the machine have any local accounts? Even when used in a domain most machines will still have a local admin account just in case of a disaster, etc.

    If Novell client is installed, when you logon locally open Advanced options (Alt-A) and from "From" drop-down list choose the computer (computer name) instead of the domain (domain name).

    You don't need the Novell client to do that with Windows. We do that with Win2K & WinXp.

    Thanks For The Replies ...

    ... but I got round it another way! I bought a removable HD case from eBay and simply put each drive into it and copied it directly on my machine from the USB attached drive!

    Thanks anyway :-)
