Run Perfmon with elevated rights (RAA) and run as another user?

How would you run Perfmon with elevated rights (RAA) and with run as another user? I need to run perfmon to check performance on a server as a different user which my local account does not have rights…

If you want right to do such a thing you should ask your administrator in charge of that server. Administrators password protect such things so local users can't use them. If that is the case I can't help you.

Run as Administrator (Perfmon)

The issues is that you would want to create an alias to force users to authenticate using different credentials if their workstation was to get compromised.

Has no one run into this problem? This seems like a common problem that other users would experiance.

Can you not run it as administrator? (right-click perfmon)

Just curious

In this instance I log into to workstation as domain\UserA. I have separate account domain Domain\UserB (with domain admin rights) that I use to run perfmon against FileServerB.

I cant seem to run perfmon with my domain credentials and use the run as administrator.

Are you set up as a 'Standard' user with limited access?

Correct just a domain user with no right to any remote server. Since the methodology in the past was to never log into a computer as a domain admin? the account that I am trying to use to authenticate to the remote host is a domain admin account.

Seems that I cant do both....
