Could you clarify what you mean by “right-click when launching Powershell”. I think this is the equivalent of the runas.exe command? If that’s the case, I would suggest right-click/runas to execute cmd.exe, then run the chef-client from here.

Hi. Charles. Yes, already looked there. Those show how to run commands in powershell, which is working fine. However, I need to run some commands with admin rights (run as Administrator). In the desktop, I can just do with with a right-click when launching Powershell. How do I duplicate this via Chef? Our boxes do not have local admin enabled, so I can’t just use that user.

I need to run a bit of powershell code in a recipe with elevated privs. Specifically, I need to run ‘enable-psremoting -force’.
By hand, I’d RDP to the box, and start a shell as Administrator and be done.
How can I duplicate this in a chef recipe?
