Is it possible to get Administrative Tools on Windows 7 (not joined to domain) to administer servers that are domain joined (since they don't ask you to provide domain/login/pass)? If yes how can I force consoles to behave like I want to?

How did you run this? was this added in the target of the properties? – user173942 May 15 '13 at 21:22
I just run cmd and that's it. I typed in right command. – MadBoy May 23 '13 at 8:49

Answering my own question. After a bit of testing this seems to do trick just fine:

C:\Users\Administrator>runas /netonly /user:<domain>\<username> "%SystemRoot%\system32\m mc.exe %SystemRoot%\system32\dnsmgmt.msc /s" 
Enter the password for <domain>\<user>: 
Attempting to start C:\Windows\system32\mmc.exe C:\Windows\system32\dnsmgmt.msc /s as user "<domain>\<user>" ...
