    We have Windows 2003 servers that are locked down and we are unable to
    execute scheduled tasks in windows.

    Is it possible for the Administrator to create a scheduled tasks which will
    run under the context of a user with Admin privileges. Can he then give us
    permission to execute/run the task. This way the task will run under the
    identity of the Admin user rather than mine.

    The task runs a batchfile that runs a nant script that needs admin
    privileges to create databases from backup, modify the metabase in IIS to
    create websites using directory services.

    Thanks in advance

  2. You can run scheduled task under any account you like.
    The usual method is to create a dedicated account (not
    a user account!), e.g. "Schedule".

    That's just it, we do not have admin right to create databases and assess
    the iis metabase.

    If a user say UserA is granted those rights and the scheduled task is set up
    to run under the identity of UserA, is it possible to grant myself exceute
    permission on the same task so that when I run it, it runs under the
    identity of UserA and not mine.

    This allows me to run a task without having admin privileges
