Permissions required to restart the print spooler service?
Posted on 2008-06-25
We have a 2003 Active Directory domain with 20 2003 SP1 servers. We have a help desk team that i need to grant access to restart the print spooler across the servers.
We only have one policy - I've edited this to allow the group acess to restart the spooler service.
I've then created a task pad displaying the service for each server.
When a memeber of the helpdesk team attempts to stop the service they get:
Error 5 access denied
I've read that SP1 changes the acl on the 'service control manager' and have run the following command:
sc sdset SCMANAGER D:(A;;CCLCRPRC;;;AU)(A;;CCLCRPWPRC;;;SY)(A;;KA;;;BA)S:(AU;FA;KA;;;WD)(AU;OIIOFA;GA;;;WD)
This results in the following error: The ACL structure is invalid
I've also run:
subinacl /service \\mlsspctx01\spooler /GRANT=mlslocal\tpad=F
And get back:
Elapsed Time: 00 00:00:00
Done: 0, Modified 0, Failed 0, Syntax errors 0
I've made sure that the policy has been refreshed, but still my user get the error 5 message... Can anyone think of what I'm doing wrong?
Thank you for looking.
