Admin password expired and can't change it

    I have an SA that has a stand alone box and she tells me that she can't login
    with the local admin account. (Administrator account disabled, new account
    created called admin with same rights.)

    It is telling her that you need to change your password, it has expired. I
    KVM into the box, get the change password screen and get

    "you do not have permission to change your password"

    Any ideas?

    thanks

  2. Hello Michael,
    Try booting to Safe Mode and logging in with the disabled Administrator
    account.
    In Safe Mode even though the administrator acocunt is disabled, it can be
    used to log on to the machine.
    You can change passwords or enable the administrator account to help with
    resolving the issue.
    Thanks,
