automatic runas with password


M

maren

I'm trying to get a program to run as system login with administrative
privileges without giving the user at the computer admin privileges. Putting
a "runas" statement in the logon script that gives the program in question
administrative privileges. However...

....I can't seem to find a way to add the proper administrative password in
the runas.exe syntax. When the script is run, it prompts the user for the
password for the administrative account it is attempting to run as.
Obviously, we do not want our users to know the administrative passwords. We
need runas to automatically enter the administrative username and password
credentials so that the program will run with admin privileges
transparently, not prompting the user.


Any ideas on this?


Thanks in advance.

Hi,
RunasSpc on robotronic.de/runasspcen.html
enables you to run programs that require administrator privileges,
without the need to enter the administrator password each time. It works
similar to the Windows RunAs command, but allows you to store the RunAs
login information in an encrypted file, which can then be called via
command line to launch a specific program with administrator privileges.
This allows you to provide users with access to program that require
admin rights, without having to provide them with elevated account
privileges. A simple administration interface is provided to generate
the cryptfile.


I hope it helps
