    Here's a good reference to the functionality I'm seeking: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo

    Nir,

    Thanks for responding!

    "Management with JEA occurs through PowerShell Remoting" kills it for me. This method also requires the user to essentially login to a PowerShell remote session on the local machine as the different user to function.

    While SUDO can allow users to take on different non-privileged user contexts in the Linux world, the specific use case that I was referring to was the practice very similar to UAC today. All users, even Administrators, start in an unprivileged session. In order to perform an action that changes the system or does something that would fall into the scope of System Administration, the user has to elevate and exercise their Admin role.

    For exmaple, in Ubuntu Linux if I needed to elevate to edit a file that was only editable by root, as a non-admin user on the allowed list of users to sudo as root, I could simply type "sudo vim <file>", input my password, and I'm off to the races.

    In Windows, to accomplish the same thing, while we do have more options on how to get to notepad and launch it as Administrator, it still requires the user to perform many more steps either by launching notepad as an admin through the right click context menu, via runas through command prompt, or by launching command prompt as an admin in the first place. There's no easy way to launch a process as another user without the greater number of keystrokes required for "Runas".

    I think this overlaps with Clustering, as you do mention Failover Clustering being the place where you would like the folders to be made available, but I also see ussantos' point where SCVMM already offers this functionality. Upvoting because I think that it is valuable to have because you don't always NEED SCVMM for an environment.
