Hi,

I want to upgrade notes client to 6.5.5 via smart upgrade in my corp. And I read the redbook of IBM that describe how to use runas utility to upgrade with administrator right in OS. It should be a .exe file called susetrunaswizard.exe. But I could not find this tool anywhere except redbook.

Have anybody any experience on it? most of my users have not administrator to their pcs, and smart upgrade run as utility is a good way to solve this case.

Thanks

Runas is an internal Command for Win2k and up.

you can use it to run an instal program that can be calle anything at all.

See

RUNAS [/profile] [/env] [/netonly] /user:<UserName> program

   /profile        if the user's profile needs to be loaded
   /env            to use current environment instead of user's.
   /netonly        use if the credentials specified are for remote access only.
   /user           <UserName> should be in form USER@DOMAIN or DOMAIN\USER
   program         command line for EXE.  See below for examples

Examples:
> runas /profile /user:mymachine\administrator cmd
> runas /profile /env /user:mydomain\admin "mmc %windir%\system32\dsa.msc"
> runas /env /user:user@domain.microsoft.com "notepad \"my file.txt\""

NOTE:  Enter user's password only when prompted.
NOTE:  USER@DOMAIN is not compatible with /netonly.

I hope this helps !
