Is there a tool that lets admins modify profile settings remotely?
Our company uses locally-stored profiles on all its workstations. Is there a utility that will allow an administrator to connect to a computer (remotely) and modify profile settings such as printers or network drive mappings without having to physically log into that machine under that person's ID?
It would theoretically be possible to do this through a Windows Script, perhaps run under another user account (with RUNAS) if needed, or via a Remote Desktop session. I don't know if there is a standalone utility that will do this, however.
