Hello everyone....

We recently started replacing most of our computers with new equipment. We
decided that this was a perfect time to change everyone from Windows XP
Administrators to Power Users. And the change has nor be transparent.

One issue that we have had for a while is the Workstation object that get
created. We name each computer in Windows XP with the inventory tag number
of the unit. When the default configuration gets created, the name is part
of the Workstation object. The other two parts of the Workstation object
name is the OS and the MAC address. When we create the image, the
registration information is whatever we used as the template machine.

When we roll out the image, the registration information gets distributed
too. The workstation name gets changed after the image is put on the
computer The first time the computer is booted up when the user is using it,
the DLU is created and the workstation gets registered, with the new MAC
address but the old computer name.

All I want to do is set up a NAL app that will look at the computer name and
the registration info, realize they don't match and run "zwsreg -unreg" to
correct the problem. But the Windows Power User is limiting that.

Is their a way to set a NAL app to run as an Administrator when the user is
a power user?

Thanks in advance.
