Our end users need to start the Azure VPN client at logon, but also we've realized without elevated priviledges to run this client and due restriction policies it can't be launched.

    Hi,

    I'd be happy to help you out with your question. Sorry for the inconvenience caused.

    Please consider below configuration and procedure :-

    Elevate privileges for the Azure VPN client: If your organization's security policies permit it, you can consider elevating privileges for the Azure VPN client so that it can be launched without any issues.

    Use a startup script: You can create a startup script that launches the Azure VPN client with elevated privileges. This script can be added to the Group Policy settings so that it runs automatically at logon for all users.

    Use a scheduled task: Another option is to create a scheduled task that launches the Azure VPN client with elevated privileges. This task can be configured to run at logon for all users.

    Use a third-party tool: There are third-party tools available that can help you launch applications with elevated privileges. For example, you can use the Microsoft Sysinternals tool "psexec" to launch the Azure VPN client with elevated privileges.

    However, I want to caution you that launching applications with elevated privileges can pose a security risk, so you should only use this approach if it's absolutely necessary and if it aligns with your organization's security policies.
