I have to grant a group of users the ability to restart services on one particular server in my domain running Windows Server 2003. What is the best way to do this? Of course, I'd like to avoid granting them local admin privileges. Will membership in the Power Users group grant them this privilege?  I was also looking for a way to grant them that right using gpedit but I didn't see any such options. Any thoughts? Thanks.

These are still working on W2k3:

Basically the same, only it doesn't list subinacl anymore (but it nevertheless still works):

Couldn't get it to work with Subinacl. Didn't want to use the security template method because I didn't want other template settings to affect the server. I installed Microsoft Group Policy Management console on the server and just did it via a GPO. Thank you for your help.

Sorry, that might have been my error; subinacl is installed with the W2k3 ResKit, but this version is buggy (it doesn't do anything, but doesn't report an error, either).
Download and install the current version from here: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=E8BA3E56-D8FE-4A91-93CF-ED6985E3927B (once it's installed, you can just copy the exe to any location you want to use it).
