Need to auto 'run as' a program using admin rights on low-level XP workstations
Posted on 2008-06-13
I am wanting to run DriveImage XML on 60 domain workstations to create bare metal backups to a network drive. The solution works great if logged in as administrator, or if I run as the program when logged in as a low level user. I can automate the solution with a batch file and command line options, but I cannot safely use the runas command and supply an admin password to automate the program.
Is it possible to use a vbs file to automate the process of using runas, while supplying credentials? I could then use the windows scheduler to launch the vbs file.
Here is the command line to launch the program...
"C:\Program Files\Runtime Software\DriveImage XML\dixml.exe" /bc /tz:\ /c /s- /v
