Copy pdf from PDM to a read only network folder

Looking for some ideas to accomplish the following...


We have a network folder that we post pdf files to using various PDM tasks.  The network folder is read only for all users except the PDM system.  This works fine as the PDM tasks execute on a dedicated client using the admin login.


The problem that I am running into is we also have a folder within PDM that we populate with pdf files (eg. datasheet files or vendor drawings).


I have a dispatch to copy the file to the network folder after a state transition.


It seems the dispatch uses the credentials of the user executing it and can't perform the copy command since they don't have write access to the network drive.


Is there another way to copy a pdf from within the PDM system to the network using the credentials of the admin user?
