I have run through the instructions on the link below but I can’t get the darn permissions correct. I always get Access denied.

The only difference is that I’m trying to start/Stop the service remotely from a domain user account (who’s SID I used)
e.g.
From at cmd prompt I run:
sc \\server start "PingGraph"
and I get
[SC] OpenSCManager FAILED 5:
Access is denied.

I can only assume I’m not getting the permissions correct or that the authentication is not from the domain user I have used but a computer account or other…..

Since SP1, users don't have remote access to the Service Manager; check here on how to resolve this:
Non-administrators cannot remotely access the Service Control Manager after you install Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1
