We have a server that hosts a service (I'll call it "tomato").
Up until now, a client pc has been able to start and stop this service. They just double-click a batch file, and inside that batch file is the command
net stop tomato
net start tomato
They recently got a new physical computer, and now those same commands fail with the error:
C:\>net stop tomato The service name is invalid. More help is available by typing NET HELPMSG 2185.
What do I need to do to let the client pc start and stop this service remotely?
Edit: I mis-remembered the original commands. They were not using "net start" and "net stop" remotely. They were using
sc \\server_name start tomato
sc \\server_name stop tomato
And those commands to indeed still work.
