Windows 7: .batch file to restart SQL server

.batch file to restart SQL server

Hi all,

I have a simple but effective way of restarting our SQL server from .bat file. this works from my computer. But from other Windows 7 it doesn't.

It comes up with .<5> access if denied.

I'm guessing it is something to with permissions. I've tried adding the users as administrators, but still not working.Even given them same permissions I have on my laptop and still no luck.

any help?!

For users for future reference. You need to enable the users that are going to be using the batch file to have access to the computer you're going to be shutting down and for them to have administrative rights on that computer aswell.

Most likely it's due to UAC, as it "converts" admins to non-admins under the hood (and restarting services require administrator privileges).
Try running the file with right click => run as administrator.
