Experts - Please help!!

-- 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?!

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

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