Starting and Stopping the Scheduler Service is required to manage the Scheduler's Appointments.  This is most often completed by users with administrative access to the workstation hosting the Scheduler.  In this article we explain the steps to take to be able to Start and Stop the Scheduler Service without needing Admin Access.

 

If you do not have access to Start and Stop the Scheduler Service you will see the Access Denied result indicated below. 

 

A simple test is to launch the Command Prompt and typing the following commands:

net start "Bridgeworks VDM Scheduler Service" 

net stop "Bridgeworks VDM Scheduler Service"

Granting Non Admin Access to Stop and Start the Scheduler Service:

1. Open Command Prompt (Search cmd)

2. Type: whoami /user and hit enter.

3. Copy your SID. (Highlight and press Ctrl + C)

4. Have someone with Admin Privileges enter your SID into the following command after running Command Prompt as Admin. (replace the orange text with your SID)

 

If you use BridgeWorks VDM:

sc sdset "BridgeWorks VDM Scheduler Service" "D:(A;;CCLCSWRPWPDTLOCRRC;;;SY)(A;;CCDCLCSWRPWPDTLOCRSDRCWDWO;;;BA)(A;;CCLCSWLOCRRC;;;IU)(A;;CCLCSWLOCRRC;;;SU)(A;;RPWPCR;;; PASTE SID HERE)S:(AU;FA;CCDCLCSWRPWPDTLOCRSDRCWDWO;;;WD)"

 

If you use Ontario Reports:

sc sdset "Ontario Reports Scheduler Service" "D:(A;;CCLCSWRPWPDTLOCRRC;;;SY)(A;;CCDCLCSWRPWPDTLOCRSDRCWDWO;;;BA)(A;;CCLCSWLOCRRC;;;IU)(A;;CCLCSWLOCRRC;;;SU)(A;;RPWPCR;;; PASTE SID HERE)S:(AU;FA;CCDCLCSWRPWPDTLOCRSDRCWDWO;;;WD)"

 

Example: sc sdset "BridgeWorks VDM Scheduler Service" "D:(A;;CCLCSWRPWPDTLOCRRC;;;SY)(A;;CCDCLCSWRPWPDTLOCRSDRCWDWO;;;BA)(A;;CCLCSWLOCRRC;;;IU)(A;;CCLCSWLOCRRC;;;SU)(A;;RPWPCR;;; S-1-5-21-864796884-381427852-1834007502-1001)S:(AU;FA;CCDCLCSWRPWPDTLOCRSDRCWDWO;;;WD)"

 

If your Admin wants to give permission to all authenticated users:

sc sdset "BridgeWorks VDM Scheduler Service" "D:AR(A;;CCDCLCSWRPWPDTLOCRSDRCWDWO;;;BA) (A;;LCRPWP;;;AU)(A;;CCLCSWLOCRRC;;;IU)(A;;CCDCLCSWRPWPDTLOCRSDRCWDWO;;;SY) S:(AU;FA;CCDCLCSWRPWPDTLOCRSDRCWDWO;;;WD)"

 

5. If done correctly your Admin should see the following.

Optional: Go back into your Command Prompt and try to Start/Stop the Service.
