I have hired a new IT support person, and I wanted to give him access to restart services ex: Print services, in my absense which occasionally needs resetting. Is their a way to give someone strict access to only restart services?

    A - What operating system? - I will reply as if it is 2k3. B - Domain or workgroup? - I will presume domain C - Will they have console access? - I will presume so. D - What level of experience, are they command line users? If it is only print services, then membership in the print operators group will suffice. If not then give us a little more detail, please. **If the answer to C is yes, then look at how the console is logged on. You may need to lock that door before putting a new horse in the barn. Good luck.

    Hmm, what's up with your spooler service? Go into the service properties and check the recovery options. Get it it restart on failure. Fire Assistant.

    IMHO, if he will be able to be in front of the server and or can remote to it - mission impossible.

    Anyone else have any suggestion on how to resolve this concern? This is for a Windows 2003 server.

    It would appear that you have a trust issue. If so, you should review your hiring practices and/or your own misgivings about having an assistant. If you are going to hire a person in this role and you are doing the hiring, you should hire someone you trust and be comfortable with your decision.
