Credentials and Launching Processes on Other Machines
Posted on 2004-08-31
I've been researching for some time the methods available to run processes on other machines. WMI CreateProcess is one and the AT command scheduler is another and I have so far put those into practice with good results.
Sysinternals have wrapped it up nicely in their PSEXEC tool but I need to be able to do this programmatically and I don't know what API calls or os features they used to achieve remote execution.
Has anyone come across methods (other than WMI or AT) available for launching processes on other machines and I would be particularly interested in solutions which allow the passing of credentials so we're not just running under the "system" account.
