Server Operators get Access is denied when using rkill

I would like to allow Server Operators to be able to install and use RKill.exe, remotely, against Domain Controllers.  Currently, Server Operators, not being Administrators on Domain Controllers, get Access is denied, when trying

     rkill /install \\DCServer

This is from an XP workstation, going against a Windows 2000 SP4 DC, in case it matters.

Furthermore, even if I do install rkill on the DCServer, Server Operators cannot user rkill /kill to end any processes.

I need to know what permissions or rights I need to grant to Server Operators in order to allow them to be able to do this.

Thank you,
Sandra

Hi
I can't say if this will work but it's maybe worth a try - give them the right to debug programs?

Deb, thank you.

This did make it possible to end tasks while logged on locally.  However, a Server Operator account still cannot install rkill, or use it to kill a process remotely.  I've made sure that Server Operators have 'Access this computer from the network" right as well.

Thanks,
Sandra

Hi

I really don't think you're going to find a way round this, sorry,
"Remote Kill
This service (RKILLSRV.EXE) with both GUI (WRKILL.EXE) and command-line (RKILL.EXE) clients allows a user to enumerate and kill processes on a remote computer. To kill a process remotely with this tool, you must be member of the Administrators group."
