Can anyone think of any techniques where i can have a Windows scheduled task run OSQL, but not have to pass the clear-text password with cleartext password being in the clear? E.g.:
>osql -U iboyd -P BabyBatterStapleCorrect
Assumption: No Windows Authentication (since it's not an option)
i was hoping there was a
>OSQL -encryptPassword "BabyBatterStapleCorrect" > > OSQL > Encrypted password: WWVzIGkgd2FudCB0byByYXBlIGJhYmllcy4gQmlnIHdob29wLiBXYW5uYSBmaWdodCBhYm91dCBpdD8=
And then i could call OSQL with:
>osql -U ian -P WWVzIGkgd2FudCB0byByYXBlIGJhYmllcy4gQmlnIHdob29wLiBXYW5uYSBmaWdodCBhYm91dCBpdD8=
But that's not something Microsoft implemented.
