runasalternate command line program enables you to log in to an application using an alternate account.
For example, system administrators typically have several accounts, a user account for general log-ins and an administrative account to access specific systems and services.
The syntax for the
runasalternate command is:
runasalternate [/account:accountname] application [argument] [/h]
You can use the following command line arguments to refine the output for the command:
|Use this option||To do this|
||Run an application using the alternate account set in Privileged Access Service.|
||(optional) Specify an application argument|
||Specify the alternate account owned by this user for which the application is to be run. This can be useful in cases where a user has more than one alternate account.|

If you have only one alternate account defined, you don't need to specify the /account option.
