I want to execute some commands with SYSTEM privileges on Windows Server 2008. I have Administrator privileges, of course. On the good old version of Windows without all the UAC BS this was as simple as:
at 15:48 /interactive cmd
And after a minute a command prompt would pop up, running as NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM. But if I do this on Windows 2008 it tells me:
Warning: Due to security enhancements, this task will run at the time expected but not interactively. Use schtasks.exe utility if interactive task is required ('schtasks /?' for details).
I checked schtasks and it looks like that only gives you the ability to run a task interactively as the logged on user, which is not what I want. Of course, I could code and install a service that runs as SYSTEM, but what a hassle! Could anyone suggest an easier way?
I'm so sick of these hoops Microsoft is making me jump through just to do what I want to do on my system.
