"Run As" the script itself ?

Recommended Posts

Hi there!

I checked the doc and only could find functions that lets you run external processes with supplying network credentials.

What is the right way to have your script itself execute as a certain network account ? Do I have to create a new thread with the needed credentials ?

Thanks.

Are you talking about using RunAs with the script as the executable? That's valid and many people have done it.

Perhaps:
$user = "username"
$pass = "password"
$domain = @ComputerName
If Not IsAdmin() Then 
    RunAs($user, $domain, $pass, 0, @ScriptFullPath)
    Exit
EndIf

; ...rest of the script

But, you would never hard-code the user name or password into the script, right?

:mellow:
