Windows Logon As Properties

When accessing remote Windows hosts the account the service is running as is used to access Windows resources such as Windows Shares and WMI. If the service is running as a domain administrator and the remote computer is not on your domain or the service is running as a local adminstrator you will need to impersonate an administrator account that is on the other domain or local to the target host. Use the Host Properties / Windows Logon As view to assign impersonation credentials and test access.

To assign impersonation credentials

  • From the Explorer view, locate the Windows host you would like to assign impersonation credentials, right click then select Host Properties. The Host Properties view displays.
  • Select the Windows Logon As tab.
  • Use the Username text box to specify only the username. Do not prepend the username with the domain or hostname.
  • Use the Password text box to specify password.
  • Use the Domain drop-down to specify the domain the user is a member of.
  • Click the Test button to test the Windows Shares and WMI access.
    Alert If you receive an Access Denied error, see Access Denied for more information.
    Information To assign or update logon as credentials to multiple computers simultaneously, see Batch Update Hosts.
