    I have a 2010 MacMini Server in my multimedia installation as media server, hooked to a Pioneer Kuro TV and Rotel AV Receiver.
    I have been using both a magicmouse/bluetooth keyboard and my MacBookPro via sharing screen.

    But after letting the macmini running without attention for more than a month (out for holidays), I've found that the Macmini ask for user when trying to share the screen from the MacBookPro, but doesn't recognice any user/password combination I've had before, not even using the keyboard.

    It seems there had been a corruption of user information.

    A single reboot didn't solve the things. The password utility didn't recognize the administrator password also

    ¿Has anybode an idea how to solve this without a clean installation?
    Thank you

    is a state of mind.
    You'll have to try that by booting from the original install DVD if you can't log in...
