Enter-PSSession with RunAsAdministrator option RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    After I Enter-PSSession in to the container with RunAsAdministrator option, if I get [Environment]::UserName property it says it is "SYSTEM" rather than Administrator.

    Is this right behavior? How to correctly get the Administrator privileges within powershell session of the container?

  • This is the expected behavior.  If you need to run an application as a specific user account - you can do so using "runas" inside the container. Note, the local Administrator account is disabled inside the container - so you will need to enable it first if you are planning to use it.
