    I havea service account that I need the password for. I cannot just change
    trhe password. Is there a password cracker that I can use to crack this AD
    domain service account?

  2. Hello joey,

    Why can't you change it? A service account is used for a special service
    only, so you can also change the password there to a new one. After that
    make sure you write it down and keep it on a safe place.

    Even if possible, i think nobody here will give you info's about cracking
    AD passwords.

    Best regards

  3. Have you tried creating a new account, and use that for the service?

    Also, I agree with Meinolf concerning cracking AD accounts. In your case, it
    doesn't appear to be a necessary solution anyway.
