Non Admin Start/Stop windows Service

HI,

What is the best practice to allow an non admin user to start/stop a service on a remote server?

Also what is the best way of achieving this? Bat file or an VBS script file?

Regards,

Best way IMO is to grant that specific user the appropriate privileges for the specific service. You'll need subinacl for that (http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=23510).
 subinacl /service \\server\service /grant=MyDomain\ThatUser=TO
to only allow sTart and stOp of "service" on machine "server".

That looks like it should work, and then your user would probably run a batch file with this in it
sc \\SERVER stop servicename
sc \\SERVER start servicename
