Sanur is a tiny Win32 console utility that 'pipes' a password
into the Windows 2000/XP/2003 Runas utility, thereby making Runas scriptable.
Sanur is freeware. There is no fee for personal or corporate use. For more details see the 'readme.txt' file included in sanur.zip.
Pipe your normal Runas commandline into Sanur and specify the
password on Sanur's commandline or use the /i switch to have Sanur read
the password from a file:-
RUNAS <options> | SANUR password
RUNAS <options> | SANUR /i [drive:][path]filename
In otherwords, just add | SANUR password to
the end of your working Runas command.
Pipe the password 'pa55w0rd' into Runas:-
runas /u:domain\username program.exe | sanur pa55w0rd
Pipe the password from the file named password.txt into Runas:-
runas /u:domain\username program.exe | sanur /i
Same as above but any Runas errors, such as a logon failure, will be
runas /u:domain\username program.exe >&2
| sanur /i password.txt
