    I need to get a dump of our SAM to test passwords and some pwcrackers for
    our security team and was wondering if any problems like crashing the server
    or corrupting the SAM occurred running utilities like PWDump3 against live,
    Win2K production systems.

    If you want to test something you should obey the first rule of
    security: never ever test something against a live system.

    That's where a lab environment is ment for :)
