RUNS AS tab in the user specific settings

  • Create an Issue
  • Cancel

Goes back to an issue i am currently troubleshooting with the support team. I need to run a CMD line connection via another user. the CMD settings does have a RUN AS tab, however since this is a team data source it would not be wise to put personal credentials as the default RUN AS. The user specific settings does have the override credentials, however that override does not work for RUN AS a different user of CMD line.

Here is the original post as a reference, though there are some emails between myself and a technician that lead me to his idea.

We have yet to start on this but I might have a work around while you wait. (not perfect but a start)

Configure a CMD session
TopicID 30639 1

Set Run As
TopicID 30639 2

Override the credentials
TopicID 30639 3

Result
TopicID 30639 4

Does that help?

Best regards,

Sorry never received this notification of updates. i tried this solution cmd entry that i have already created to open an MMC snapin as my domain admin. right now i am getting an a unable to execute the application!: "mmc.exe"

for the credentials in the entry they are set to inherit from the top folder where my credentials are at through pleasant password server. I also over wrote the creditials to look directly at my pleasant password, and that did not work. I also manually entered in the credentials to test this and that also gave me the same error.

You've tried with mmc.exe but have you tried with a simple cmd /k whoami? I was able to get to work this way when I specified a User Specific Setting. So that should be solved.

As for mmc.exe, things get complicated. Mmc.exe is somewhat odd and executing it via a runas is not always easy or even achievable. A good approach is to do it manually via cmd first then replicating that within RDM sessions.

That being said you can try something like this: cmd /c mmc.exe c:\your\path\file.msc instead mmc.exe c:\your\path\file.msc this may help in your case.

this did work as a nice work around. the MMC does not opened tabbed in RDM (the CMD does and stays there as long as the MMC is open), but it does run it as the user i need.

Embedding (re-parenting) an MMC window is not always possible and when it does work the loaded msc can become completely unusable (won't accept any mouse or keyboard input).

Your best bet is to use it externally to avoid any problems.

Previously the MMC tabbed in was working just fine outside of the Runas specific user. but there were a few times that I did see that unresponsiveness you mentioned, though it did not happen often.
