I have windows 2012 r2 VM but I forget the windows administrator password.

When I'm trying to reset the password from recovery command line using below command.

  1. X:\sources
  2. d: cd windows\system32\ren utilman.exe utilman.exe.old
  3. copy windows\system32\cmd.exe utilman.exe.
Usually above command will work for normal physical windows server , ESXi Guest vm's to reset the local administrator password.

** In nutanix recovery command line I am unable to view my actual OS disk.

Is there any way, How can i view my guest VM os disk on recovery mode. ?

Guessing you need to add the virtio drivers. Mount the iso and use pnputil I think

Only SCSI virtual disk's are not showing. I have changed the virtual disk bus type to SATA & tried.

@ jrack
that also will not work.

I have changed bus type from SCSI to SATA then I tried to reset the password. It's working now.
