Medium Priority

Last Modified: 2013-11-21
I am looking for a possible way to grant support team to access the server but they can only able to as below tasks:

1. Access Security Log
2. Restart the services

I know the Remote Desktop Users group can only access the server via RDP, but they can't do either both tasks. Any idea?

Thanks in advance!

1. You can do that with a local or group security policy; Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local Policies\User Permissions, "Management of Audit and Security Logs" (or similar, not using an English version).
2. There are several ways to do this for specific services; check this article:

Not the solution you were looking for? Getting a personalized solution is easy.

Ask the Experts
Performance monitor users can monitor the security logs
server operators/ backup operators (please check which one, but i think server operators should) can restart the services

you will find these groups as "Builtin" groups on server
