Setting up DSRM Synchronised passwords for SBS 2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — solutionsthroughit @ 18:22

If for some reason you need to update or reset the password for DSRM (Directory Services Restore Mode) then you’ll want to have a look at this.  After backing up your server, download and install the update for your server. 



Once you’ve installed this, you are now able to execute the following command:

ntdsutil "set dsrm password" "sync from domain account <AccountName>" q q

This will synchronise the password from <AccountName> to the DSRM.
