How do I change the RPC Service Logon account remotely or from the command prompt?

The logon name for the RPC Service was accidentally changed.  Now, we cannot login to out Server 2003 machine.  How can I change the logon back remotely?

The Server 2003 machine is the domain server and there is not a backup domain controller in place.

You should be able to use the sc.exe tool.

For example,

sc <server> config <service name> obj= <Account name>

Type sc --help and sc config --help for more info.

Will this work from the command prompt?
sc \Proplus config Remote Procedure Call (RPC) displayname= NT Authority\NetworkService password= ""

What you need is something like this...

sc \\servername config rpcss obj= mydomain\userA password= userApassword
