 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.
