Hello, I'm trying to use paexec command in order to run some batch file as another user.

i use this command:

paexec.exe -u username -p password -i file.bat

if the user (username) is member of the administrator group it works fine, if he doesn't i get this message:

"PAExec v1.25 - Execute Programs Remotely Copyright (c) 2012-2013 Power Admin LLC www.poweradmin.com/PAExec

Using SessionID 8 (interactive session) Failed to set interactive token A required privilege is not held by the client. [Err=0x522, 1314] PAExec starting process ["file.bat"] as <username>

PAExec returning exit code -1073741502 "

It also happens even if i'm trying to run notepad.exe or anything else.

is there any chance to avoid granting the user administrative permissions?

BTW- if i do not use -i flag it works good from cmd (even if the user do not have administrator's permissions), but when i run it from process it fails.

I'll really appriciate your help! Thanks.

Make sure the user account you are using actually has logon interactive privs on the target server. Either make it an admin (not-optimal) or grant it 'Allow log on locally' via GPEdit.msc.
