GPO for Retrust of Kace Agents

Several months ago the majority of our agents stopped reporting into our Kace appliance.  After opening a support ticket we got a clear and easy fix to stop, retrust and restart amptools.  Because of the huge number of agents that aren't communicating I would like to get this fix distributed via GPO.  However, the problem I'm having is that this process requires Run As Admin for the command prompt before running the steps to work with amptools.  Can I launch an elevated cmd through GPO to run these steps?  Any help and/or examples are greatly appreciated.

C:\Program Files (x86)\Quest\KACE  amptools stop

C:\Program Files (x86)\Quest\KACE amptools retrust

C:\Program Files (x86)\Quest\KACE amptools start

C:\Program Files (x86)\Quest\KACE runkbot 4 0

I believe a scheduled task allows you to run as admin, give that a shot.

We had the same issue a few months ago, but we have less than 500 KACE agents installed. I just ran a PSEXEC script that ran your commands above and that did the trick for us. If you have a lot more agents, that may not be practical for you, however.
