    Using the root account or as a regular user, typing su at the command line interface and providing the root password when prompted.

    You mean accessing other machines as root using a single sign on, for example, being able to access administrative shares, etc.?

    The administration of Windows as compared to UNIX/Linux is a lot different - it took me few years to learn this, coming from an Active Directory environment.

    Yeah I know it's off the wall. I am running Open-AudIT and in order to run the audit on every machine in the domain, I have to log in as the domain admin. I am learning the application slowly. I don't have much experience with domains, though.
