Question : RUNAS ERROR: Unable to acquire user password
Workstation: XP Pro SP2 (adminpak installed)
Server (DC) Server2003 Standard Edition SP1
I’m trying to use the commandline runas utility by opening a command box under logged on user and typing the following command:
“runas /user:gemsoft.local/administrator cmd” this command then prompts me for a password:
“Enter the Password for Gemsoft.Local: ” When I try to type in the password, nothing happens… No caracters apear as I type and when I press the Enter Key I get the message:
“RUNAS ERROR: Unable to acquire user password”
I’ve also tried entering the command into the “RUN” dialog box.
Can anyone see where I’m going wrong?
Solution: RUNAS ERROR: Unable to acquire user password
runas /user:gemsoft.local/administrator cmd
runas /user:gemsoft.localadministrator cmd
Also I assume Administrator is a domain account ?
