    Hi

    I was looking for a way to allow users from different desktops and logons to run a script to do something they might not have access to. Is there a way to embed the creds to do this without them seeing it? I know i can create it but then the script has to be run under my profile on my machine. for example. create a script to stop / start a service for their application. i could create the script but have it run under a domain service account that would allow them to manage this service. Is there a way to do this with the creds encrypted?

    Not natively, no.

    Natively, you'd typically do this through a customized remoting endpoint – but that does require a lot of setup. Another option is to use a 3rd party packager, which creates an EXE from your script and runs under embedded credentials. PowerGUI has one, PrimalScript has one, not sure if any other tools do.
