I have an interesting problem where I need to change the password of a local administrator account for a remote computer that I only have access to via Gotomeeting or TeamViewer.
We are a IT contracted support group and there is a company that ‘used’ to be our clients but now have come back to us. We need to install the connect wise utility on their machines, but have to remote to each one and install. Problem is, their previous IT company changed their local admin passwords, but our original back door admin account is still on the machines.
The client can get us remoted in via Gotomeeting, however when I try to run an elevated command prompt, the Windows 10 password prompt is not visible via the Gotomeeting interface, so I can’t put our back door admin password in the prompt to then reset the local password. Same thing for TeamViewer.
I can’t obviously tell the user our backdoor password either.
Is there a way for me to capture my back door credentials without the user seeing it and pass that to a ‘RunAs’ to run an elevated PS prompt without the windows 10 prompt?
