How to start a service from CMD with start parameters

Hi there,

in the services.msc I can start a service and provide it with specific start parameters. But how can I do that from the command line? With net start or sc I'm not able to do that, RegChange is also not an option because I have to do this one time on 100+ servers.

You are able to try to use "psexec.exe + One of Server List text file"
(* you should have domain adminstrator access right.... )

Thanks for your response - It's not a problem for me to distribute the service restart over several servers. My question is - how to provide the start parameters from the command line.
