How do I a powershell script with alternate credentials

Last Modified: 2012-05-06
Hello everyone! I am sure this is a simple answer, but I have no clue how to get it to work. I have a script that is querying a XenDesktop farm and the user must have elevated credentials on the farm in order to run the script. In stead of giving everyone those elevated credentials, we have created an account that can run it. My question:
Is there a way to program in the credentials into the PowerShell script so when it is ran it runs as the account that has the correct rights.
