Option to run Shared Toolbox items as SYSTEM instead of prompting for UAC in user session

Ryan Black 2 years ago 0

We would like to be able to run elevated scripts against multiple devices using the Shared Toolbox in the Access web interface.  These scripts run silently without user interaction.  We can select multiple machines and run scripts against them, but when "Run Tool Elevated" is checked we get mixed behavior.  The scripts will work as expected for systems with no logged-in user, running as SYSTEM with full privileges and no UAC prompts.  However, if a limited user is logged in and Run Tool Elevated is checked, they will receive a UAC prompt which they inevitably cancel because they do not have access.  This severely limits the functionality of what is otherwise an awesome tool.  Here is a mock-up of roughly what we're looking for.
