    A domain controller is a server that runs a version of Windows Server O.S and has already intalled Active Directory Domain Services. When you want to create a new domain, or an extra domain controller in an existing domain, you will configure the server with the domain controller role by installing domain controller Active Directory. When you log into a P.C in a network,your id and password are checked at the central server inspite of what computer your connecting from. A domain controller can also control access to files and directories can be configured so that users can get access to all files regardless of the computer to log on from.

    well, I just want to inform you that Setting up a Domain Controller in Windows Server 2008 is not such a complex thing. But when you add a AD domain password, your should keep it in mind. And If you lose this AD domain password, the one and only way to reset it, is by using a windows password recovery which will help you recover AD Domain password. The best one is Windows Password Key Enterprise. It is 100% working. I have tried it myself! So you need not worry about it!

    As Lemog said, it is troublesome to recover lost DC password.
    I have met the Server password and used Windows Password Recovery Corporation for my forgotten Server domain password.
