I have 4 servers(2003) that i don't want to open up for all users. I do however want to allow a select number of users who have business on those servers, to start and stop services without giving them full access. basically i want 3 people to be able to remotely start and stop some services. right now i have to add them to the administrators group to give them access to the security group. I only want these 3 people to be able to access that panel. if possible, just the 2 services they need to use.

I did use this command which allows Non Administrators to access the  services. But like i said, i want to narrow it down to 3 specific users.

Click Start, click Run, type cmd, and then click OK.
Type the following command at the command prompt, and then press ENTER:

sc sdset SCMANAGER D:(A;;CCLCRPRC;;;AU)(A;;CCLCRPWPRC;;;SY)(A;;KA;;;BA)S:(AU;FA;KA;;;WD)(AU;OIIOFA;GA;;;WD)

Download it, install it. This runs as a service on the server, the remote user logs in to a webpage and can choose reboot server, restart service.

They need no access to the server and it works quite well. You can set multiple users with passwords and it keeps a log.

The default port is 1275 so they would login by http://SERVER:1275

Or write a batch using psexec (PSTOOLS) and the use something like B Dargo batch file encryptor to prevent plain text reading of the admin password.
