Microsoft Windows Authenticated Administration Utility

This module uses a valid administrator username and password to execute an arbitrary command on one or more hosts, using a similar technique than the "psexec" utility provided by SysInternals. Daisy chaining commands with '&' does not work and users shouldn't try it. This module is useful because it doesn't need to upload any binaries to the target machine.
