Continuing my conversation with myself...
The above is half right. It seems that I have to log in by password
authentication, and then authenticate again to UAC, before I get my admin
At the console that's how it works: I log in as the backup user, ask for admin
rights, authenticate again to UAC, and then, finally, can read or write any file
on the system.
In sshd, I log in by password authentication, but now I'm stuck because I don't
know a command-line program to authenticate to UAC. Without that, I don't have
any admin rights.
So: Is there a command-line program that will allow me to authenticate to UAC?
And do I have this right?
