Batch file from remote server

Experts - Please help!!

I have a need to run a batch file on a server (as if it was executed as an administrator on that server) from a remote server.

-- I cannot use TSQL to run the batch file as our IT department will not grant me the permissions to do it.
It is on a Windows 2008 R2 Server with SQL Server 2008 R2.

Any ideas?!

Thanks,
Dan

If you want to run it at specific interval or automatically, then you can use Windows Service to execute it.

Sorry for not being clearer while posing the question ...

Thanks for the idea... but it's gotta be on demand by a regular user with limited permissions.

To further clarify -- RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol) is out as we cannot (as far as I know) have a user login and run a batch file unless we give them enough access to do some serious damage to a server...

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

I would suggest working with your IT department instead of trying to work around their security.

This sounds like more of a problem with internal policies instead of a technical issue.

If you can put forward a good case for the batch file being ran, then IT should be able to modify their security settings, or find a different method to perform the same functionality without affecting the server security.

You may want to look into PSEXEC utility

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb897553

It allows you to run commands remotely as administrator on a remote machine.
