I need to give a non-administrator user the ability to restart a service on a server, but I'm getting "access denied" following these instructions: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/324802/EN-US/
I've created a user called "serviceuser" that's a member of the Domain Users group. I created a new OU called "SpecialAuthority" and this user is a member of that OU. I've created a group policy of the same name as the OU, granted that user (on the particular service I'm interested in) the rights of "Start, Stop, Pause". Logged into a machine as serviceuser to test sc from the command prompt as follows:
sc \\server stop SomeAppService
I did a gpupdate, no dice; waited a full day, no dice.
