Possible to Execute a Batch file on a server remotely by a non-admin user ?

By cyberdanxx ·
Anyone know how to execute a .bat file action on a windows 2003 server when running the script from a windows XP domain PC?

The batch file in question is located in a mapped network drive directory of the server. The sole line of the script is net start "alerter". It runs but it excutes the action on the user PC, from where it is executed instead of the server...

Much obliged,

Create a scheduled task on the server and select the batch file you created, schedule it to run one time only. When you want to use it run the scheduled task on the server and it will start the task on the server!

This is valid if the admin has to get involved, we are trying to eliminate this dependency.

The batch file needs to be executed from a client PC, from a non-admin. user, and whenever he need to start or stop the service(3rd party application) in question.
