command prompt disabled workaround

We are looking at a windows server to do some general healthcheck and security reviews. The command prompt is disabled (even for domain admin accounts), I presume this is either via a group policy or the servers local security policy. My question is rather than have the sysadmin retweak his GPO's, is there any easy way with domain admin rights (and subsequent local admin on the server), to bypass this policy/temporarily use the command prompt ? It is server 2008 R2 if that makes any difference.

Sure! Go to gpsearch.azurewebsites.net. Search for your policy. You will see a registry value.

On the local machine, go to that registry location and delete the key. When you need the key back, run a gpupdate /force

you can also try to run it from task manager. File | run | New Task | CMD
most policies forget to disable from there.
