command line .exe......unique admin credentials


Recommended Posts

We have an exe that runs from command line we want to push to systems (scut.exe to uninstall Trend Micro).  However, these windows systems do not login with admin credentials and the exe requires admin credentials.  How may we publish this task/script?  Also, this will be the first time we have ever created a task/script as we are new to Pulseway.  And again to add more……we need to roll this out to out 250 computers….however not all of those systems have the same local windows admin credentials.  In fact of those 250 systems there are approx 25 unique sets of admin credentials.

Hey @R.Rupert

There are a number of ways to do it,  When running anything through Pulseway, it will default to running as the system account. So trying to run those commands through Pulseway, you're opening the program (if it even supports non-interactive) as the system account, and no user will see it. You could check processes to confirm that though.  

You would need to run it under user context and right now, Pulseway only has that ability to do this if you log onto the machine in question, open Pulseway Manager, go to Settings - Runtime and scroll to the bottom to Enable PowerShell User Impersonation.  This will run scripts through Pulseway as the user you entered. 

Here is a link to the article for more info - LINK

I hope this helps and if you need any more help please let me know!
