MFC solution to stop/start services
Posted on 2002-04-15
Right now our domain user accounts default to membership in the local Users group; however, they need the ability to start/stop some Windows 2000 services, such as SNA. Since this requires administrative rights, I was wondering if it would be possible to run another service with administrative rights which the users can access in order to start/stop these services. This would need to be an MFC/WIN32 solution, perhaps cli/srv model in design: a GUI interface to communicate with the custom service and the custom service will have the ability to start/stop selected services. Is this possible or is there another way to accomlish this?
