John cracked both parts of adiministrator's password. So I downloaded and 
NTLM-patched build of John. But unfortunately it doesn't seem to do 

./john -w=cracked -rules -format=nt password
Loaded 4 password hashes with no different salts (NT MD4 [TridgeMD4])
guesses: 0  time: 0:00:00:00 100%  c/s: 967784  trying: 5 PASSWORD HAShes 
cracked, 3 left

And when I execute ./john --show password it doesn't show any changes to the 
previous output. It looks it doesn't discover the cases of letters.
