How to allow certain users to restart a service on W2K3 serves?

I would like to enable a group of users to only be able to restart the Print
spooler service. (Don't want him to have any additional rights). I don't
want them to have administrators priviledges either.

How do we enable this?

Hi,

Relevant for Windows XP/Win2k3 Server also:

HOW TO: Grant Users Rights to Manage Services in Windows 2000

For method 3 in the article above:

A new, bug-fixed version of SubInACL.exe is available for download here
(Win2k/WinXP/Win2k3):

SETACL (freeware) at http://setacl.sourceforge.net/ can also set permissions
on local or remote Win32 services.
