To do this, please follow the directions below:

  1. Place the psexec.exe tool on the machine where you want the mapped drive to be created (e.g., C:\Sysinternals\psexec.exe).
    Note: You can download the psexec.exe file from the Sysinternals Security Utilities suite at

  2. Go to the command prompt icon, right-click and select “Run as Administrator”.

  3. In the command prompt, go to the directory where psexec.exe was copied (e.g., "cd C:\Sysinternals").

  4. Enter the following command to open a command prompt as the SYSTEM user: “psexec.exe –i –s cmd.exe”

  5. In the new command prompt window that just opened, enter the following command: “whoami"

  6. Confirm that the current command prompt is running as “nt authority\system”.
