bug in Windows Vista RTM - not able to do domain run as
I have the Windows 2003 Adminpak.msi installed on Windows Vista Ultimate
RTM.

I am logged on to Vista as a local administrator. I hold down shift and then
click on DNS, DHCP, etc and try and do a 'Run As'. Meaning, I should be
prompted for alternate credentials.

However this does not happen so it appears there is no way to perform run as
other than bu using local administrator access.

Am I missing something or did MS really screw up here?

Re: bug in Windows Vista RTM - not able to do domain run as
Hello,

Run As is tied in with UAC and would be more correctly labeled "run with
administrator privileges". As such, there are only a limited set of
circumstances where this option will get you to a credentials prompt. You
can use the runas command line tool to run a program with alternate
credentials.
