I'm currently setting up a domain user with slightly less rights than a domain admin but enough to perform daily administration.

It was all going well until I discovered that this new user isnt able to stop the Fax Service (occasionally needs restarting). I can't think of how to grant access to do this and preferably without giving it access to stop/start/restart all services.

I'm probably going about this all wrong bacause this user is now practically everything but a domain admin.

Currently a member of:
Domain Power Users
Domain Users
Fax Operators
Remote Desktop Users
Remote Web Workplace Users
Server Operators
+(Anti-virus and WSUS groups)

Luckily i've started setting this up a good 2 weeks before i go on holiday so i have time to get it sorted.

Thanks in advance
