Windows Services start / stop

Trying to create a couple of batch files to start / stop services on a remote server (still on internal network)

Dont want to use PowerShell... just create a normal batch file.

Server its running the batch file from is 2016, and the remote server is 2008r2

Tried to do

sc \\machine stop "service"

but get an error

[SC] ControlService FAILED 1062

The service has not been started.

Use task schedule and set to run these services as administrator

Nothing. If the service is not started, you cannot stop it!
You can redirect error output to suppress it by appending >2 nul
