How do I reset my Windows Administrator Password?
Follow these steps to reset your Windows server password:
Put your Windows VPS into Rescue Mode.
Open the Server Console (refer to this article for help with accessing your server).
Follow the prompts as they appear until you get to the "System Recovery Options" screen. Then click "Next >" - see Figure 1.
Select "Microsoft Diagnostics & Recovery Toolset" - see Figure 2.
Select "Locksmith" - see Figure 3.
Select "Next >" - see Figure 4.
Enter your new Administrator password and click "Next >" - see Figure 5. Note: The password you set here is only temporary - you will be prompted to change the password again when you next successfully login to your server.
Now click "Finish", then "Close" the Diagnostics & Recovery Toolset window and "Shut Down" your VPS - see Figure 6.
Close the VPS Console and Disable Rescue Mode. Your Windows VPS will boot. Open the VPS Console again.
