Syncing DSRM & Domain Administrator Passwords

Setting the password for DSRM is done during setup of AD.
Under W2K3 this was complicated and required you to use NTDS. This has been addressed in W2K8. Download this hotfix and after installation, run the following command to sync the passwords.

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