    Impersonating a user from Windows PE

    Hi all,

    I am working with the SMS management point API, and the invoke method. The invoke method is used to send a message from a client computer to a remote computer. The remote computer will then send back to the client computer a reply.

    When I use the invoke method like this:


    I get error code 800706BA. I think that this means that "RPC Server is unavailable" or something to that measure. So I think that that means that it cannot contact the server.

    I changed it to only check the computer name, SCCMDC.

    invoke("SCCMDC", pMessage, pReply);

    What happened is that the error code changed to 80070005. I think that this means that the authentication failed to the currently logged in user. Because of this, I take it as that it can contact the server, but failed to access it because of authentication failure. Please correct me if I am wrong here.

    My problem is how to get around this. Can anyone suggest to me commands how to impersonate a user from a Remote Computer with Administrator rights so that the application can run with those rights?

    Thank you!

    Do you know the password of the account of the administrator?

    Hi oliv, thanks for replying.

    Yes, I know the password of the administrator account. I can even get the username and password of a Network Access Account in case I do not know the password of any local accounts on the remote computer.

    Can you please tell me your idea / suggestions?

    Thank you!
