Non Administrator user - stop windows service remotely

New Contributor


i upgrade my server form windows 2012 R2 to windows 2019 and now i cant stop and start service manually.


i gave full permission to the user on the service but i still get this msg:

[SC] OpenService FAILED 5:

Access is denied.


when i run this from remote computer, before the upgrade in 2012 all work fine


thank a lot,

Hello @roeer,


You could check if it's blocked, here's a KB article:

Block remote callers who are not local administrators from starting/stopping services


Here's also a similar thread:

Best regards,
