Re: SSHD, Cygwin and Windows 2003 : continued with user rights

Thanks for the tip.
I decided to get rid of this stupid iisreset and use instead a command like
net start/stop msftpsc/w3svc

works fine whith whatever administrator

Next I guess I'll go look for some tip on how to unlock iisreset so it
can be used by whatever admin and not just local ..

Sorry to jump in! Just an idea; How about runas, is it available in W2K+3? (I'm on W2K)

$ echo >iisreset.bat -e \ "@echo off\necho This is me, using the Administrators rights\!" $ u2d iisreset.bat iisreset.bat: done. $ runas /profile /user:mymachine\administrator cmd /c iisreset.bat

<SIGH> *I* can't make it work for a simple test like above :-7 (from the
BASH prompt! I have a similar thing running via BAT scripts).
runas seems to "think" it doesn't get correct arguments.

*IS* it possible? I deem it should be.

F:\>runas /?

RUNAS [/profile] [/env] [/netonly] /user:<UserName> program

  /profile        if the user's profile needs to be loaded
  /env            to use current environment instead of user's.
  /netonly        use if the credentials specified are for remote access
  /user           <UserName> should be in form USER@DOMAIN or DOMAIN\USER
  program         command line for EXE.  See below for examples


runas /profile /user:mymachine\administrator cmd
runas /profile /env /user:mydomain\admin "mmc %windir%\system32\dsa.msc"
runas /env / "notepad \"my file.txt\""

NOTE: Enter user's password only when prompted. NOTE: USER@DOMAIN is not compatible with /netonly.
