Assign users the ability to stop/start services on a 2008r2 server in a 2012R2 domain.

    Question

  • Is there a way to assign users the ability to stop/start specific 3rd party services that run on a 2008r2 server? The DC is a 2012R2 server and only shows the local services in GPMC.

    I have read the article on technet: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/5752.how-to-grant-users-rights-to-manage-services-start-stop-etc.aspx. The services listed do not include the specific services that I need to assign. I assume that I could use the 'Security Configuration Tool' on the 2008R2 server, but I am concerned that I could cause a problem if I try to import the policy from a 2008R2 server to a 2012R2 server.

    Thanks

  • The service is already installed on the 2008R2 server. Are you telling me to create the service on the DC using gpmc?

  • I successfully installed gpmc on the 2008r2 server and added the group to access the service.

    What do I have to do on the DC?

    Yes. Configure ANY service to your needs, then edit the GptTmpl.inf file
    in the GPO's sysvol folder and replace the service name :)

  • Hi Robert,

    You could try to grant rights using Subinacl.exe.

    SUBINACL /SERVICE \\MachineName\ServiceName GRANT=[DomainName\]UserName[=Access]

    For more information, you could refer to the article below.

    Method 3: Grant rights using Subinacl.exe

    Note: The steps are similar in Windows Server 2003 and Windows Server 2008.

    Best Regards,

    Jay
