    Hello everyone

    Who has an idea how I can run invoke-sqlmcd with a nother user

    I try with the credential part but it does not work

    thank you for your help

    $startTime = (Get-Date)
    $username = "A1\amdev"
    $password = "ge56hSW7U"

    $myCredential = New-Object System.Management.Automation.PSCredential($username, (ConvertTo-SecureString $password -AsPlainText -Force))

    Start-Process powershell.exe -Credential $myCredential

    IF (!(Get-Module -Name sqlps))
    Write-Host 'Loading SQLPS Module' -ForegroundColor DarkYellow
    Import-Module sqlps -DisableNameChecking

    $localScriptRoot = "C:\TSQL\Insertion Distind_importation_tampon\"
    $Server = "DWH"
    $scripts = Get-ChildItem $localScriptRoot | Where-Object {$_.Extension -eq ".sql"}

    foreach ($s in $scripts)
    Write-Host "Running Script : " $s.Name -BackgroundColor DarkGreen -ForegroundColor White

    Invoke-Sqlcmd -ServerInstance $Server -InputFile $s -Querytimeout 0


    $endTime = (Get-Date)

    $ElapsedTime = (($endTime-$startTime))

    'Duration: {0:mm} min {0:ss} sec' -f $ElapsedTime

    Is there a reason you can't launch the Powershell window as a different user?


    Excuse my typos and sometimes awful grammar. My fingers work faster than my brain does.

    Try defining $password as:

    $password = "ge56hSW7U" | ConvertTo-SecureString -AsPlainText -Force

    and then just using the variable when creating the object.

    Personally I would be inclined not to have the password in the script but in an encrypted file as detailed here:

    is it easier to just put EXECUE AS  in your Tsql script?

    or is this not where the issue lies?
