    Angry Lost password for Data Domain

    So I'm working on a customer site that lost the password to their Data Domain box years ago. For all intents a purposes lets say they guy that knew got hit by the proverbial bus. Yes only one guy knew the password. The issue that I have is I do not know if using backtrack will jack up the box or not. Or if it will even work. Does anyone have any advice or experience when dealing with a proprietary Linux kernel?

    You should be fine running bt. If it was me I would probably want to get a full disk image before doing any recovery work and/or do the password recovery on a non production box.

    Default Re: Lost password for Data Domain

    I do the following:
    boot BT
    mkdir /mnt/windows
    mount /dev/sda3 /mnt/windows
    cd/mnt/windows/windows/system32
    mv Utilman.exe Utilman.exe.bak
    cp cmd.exe Utilman.exe
    Reboot to Windows
    Use keyboard shortcut Windows + U when on the logon screen
    net user administrator Newpass123 inside the cmd
    log on with the domain admin account and this new pass
    change the password to something you will remember
    Reboot BT to put back the original Utilman.exe
    I like the bleeding edge, but I don't like blood loss
