Run As prompt to elevate to a domain account in Vista
Posted on 2007-11-27
Okay, so I've searched the internet all over the damn place trying to figure out this aggravating usage problem I'm having with Vista but it seems impossible to sepearate details on Run As and Vista from someone discovering UAC in Vista for the umpteenth time. In our domain we follow recommended security guidelines of elevating to domain admin privledges using the Run As...(Shift + Right Click) for specific domain admins utilities. This would always cause a prompt in XP which let me type in my admin credentials. However, with Vista, this Run As... option is simply assumed now to be "Run As administrator" even when I turn off UAC. Any ideas how to override the default and have it prompt for the account instead of simply defaulting to a local one? Thanks.
