RunAs logon_flag

2 posts in this topic

What does each option in the logon_flag for RunAs function means:

0 - Interactive logon with no profile.

1 - Interactive logon with profile.

2 - Network credentials only.

4 - Inherit the calling processes environment instead of the user's.

I asked this question because there are instances when option 4 works, while option 2 doesn't. This happens when I try to run Symantec Endpoint Client setup on a machine logged with a limited domain user. Option 2 never worked although the setup ran, but a message appeared complaining about priviliges, while option 4 ran the setup with administrator credentials and installed the client, successfully.

The command is: RunAs("AdminUser" "Domain", "AdminPassword", 4, "\\Server\Sharename\Setup.exe")
