We have always been big on the Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack.
Here is one big reason why:
- TechNet: Resetting Passwords with the DaRT page
- TechNet Video: Resetting Passwords with the DaRT (WMV)
This short video walks through the Locksmith utility that allows us to reset a password for a lost local admin account.
It has come in very handy for many of our client’s systems as well as our own. All of our clients are licensed for desktop OS Software Assurance + MDOP and so are we.
This one tool can pay for the cost of the yearly SA + MDOP subscription fee which is not very high many many times over.
