Right to add/remove start/stop services


We have a PDC windows 2k and we recently add to the domain a windows 2003 server wich is use to program testing only.

My question is how can give to a DC User a special right to install/remove or start/stop a windows services? without giving him the domain admin rights?

In order to indeed install and remove services, he needs to be a local(!) administrator; in that case, make the user's domain account a member of the Administrators group on the server.
If he only needs to start or stop an existing service, check here for the possibilities to do so:

If the 2003 server is a DC, then there is no local SAM (to speak of) so the Administrators group isn't there.

If this is a member server, then oBdA's suggestion is correct.
