Make Token Command



In its default configuration, this module creates a new network security context with the specified logon data (username, domain and password). Under the hood, Meterpreter's access token is cloned, and a new logon session is created and linked to that token. The token is then impersonated to acquire the new network security context. This module has no effect on local actions - only on remote ones (where the specified credential material will be used). This module does not validate the credentials specified.

Time is precious, so I don’t want to do something manually that I can automate. Leveraging the Metasploit Framework when automating any task keeps us from having to re-create the wheel as we can use the existing libraries and focus our efforts where it matters.
