Start service using batch file

Running Small Business Server 2008 on ML350 G5 server.
I need to start a service at a certain time each day.  I am not a computer expert.  I have created a batch file which will start the service at 02:00 am.  However, it needs to run as administrator.  Somehow I need to elevate the privilege .  I like my sleep and I don't want to wake up at 02:00 and elevate the batch file .   Someone must have figured out how to do this.

Remember, I am not an expert so please provide detailed instructions on how to raise the privilege so this batch file can run.  Thank you for your help.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

use the task scheduler to start the batch file.

Use windows task scheduler. With this built in tool you can set the time, account to run under and other options.

Alternatively if there is an absolute requirement for a user name and password you can set this with your scheduled task and set run level RL to highest.


Command line would look like

Schtasks /ru username /rp password /RL highest /tn taskname /tr c:\somefile.bat

Of course you'd have to edit the command for daily as well as time to run
