I am having problems starting cron as another use besides SYSTEM.
$cygrunsrv -I cron -p /usr/sbin/cron.exe -a -D -u testuser
Enter password of user `.\testuser':
$cygrunsrv -S cron
cygrunsrv: Error starting a service: StartService: Win32 error 5:
Access is denied.
When I try to start cron from the services menu in Windows, I receive the
"Access is denied"
Here are the W2K permissions I granted to the 'testuser' in order to have
rights to start cron as user 'testuser'.
I added the user to the administrators group and granted the following:
Act as part of the operating system
Log on as a service
Log on locally
Replace a process level token
Also has access to all privledges that the administrators group has.
Am I missing something here?
