How can I control user access to a network server?

I have one service on a network server that I would like a few people to be able to stop and start. However, I do not want them to be able to stop and start any other services. How do I allow them to do this without making them administrators on the server?

Your best bet is to use the Group Policy Management Console (GPMC) to set the security ACL on one or more services for one or more servers on your network. This ensures that your critical network services will be configured in a consistent way to only allow access to those people who require it.
