Using the RUNAS command with UNC paths
This tip was submitted to the SearchWin2000.com tip exchange by member Marquia Jones. Please let other users know how useful it is by rating it below.
You cannot connect to a UNC path using RunAs under Windows 2000. The statement runas /user:Domainuser "\servernamesharepath" will not work. The error reads: "RUNAS ERROR: Unable to run ... access ID denied."
BUT when you type runas /user:Domainuser "explorer \servernamesharepath," it works.
