Everyone,

I have a service that uses a user in our 2003 AD, and the password has been
misplaced. Is it possible to obtain the password for this service account
hosted in AD?

No, you cannot recover the password (except by brute force guessing). If you
need to know the password, reset the password on the user account in ADUC,
then correct the password in the service properties on the "Log on" tab.
