The Directory Services Restore Mode (DSRM) password is first set when promoting a new Domain Controller. I have encountered many Active Directory environments where the DSRM password for the Domain Controllers is not known or safely stored for retrieval when needed. In this article I revisit the options to reset the DSRM password.
