This is our first Windows Server 2008 install with SQL 2005. I noticed today I am unable to restart the SQL Server services using management studio. I receive "access denied" despite being connected as the service account. Is this by design with Windows Server 2008 and if so, is there anything I need to do to allow a service account or any other account the ability to restart the services using Management Studio? I am able to restart the services using "services" under Administrator Tools. The service account I am using is also a member of the local administrators group.
