You guys had asked if PAExec behaves any differently then psexec. In this case it does.

with PsExec one of the things I can do is launch a process, locally on the machine, as a less privileged user, in this case nt authoritynetwork service, no password is needed and so none is requested. this is when psexec is running as a system account and attempting to launch a process as the less privileged network service user on the local machine.

PaExec does not appear to do this. It wont launch the local process as network service without asking for a not needed password. so the behavior is different.
