  1. Hello,

    I tried to change a services DACL on Windows 2003 .... now I locked myself
    out of the service because the DACL was reset.

    Now when I use: "sc sdshow tomcatform" I get the following output:
    [SC] OpenService FAILED 5:
    Access is denied.

    I'm not able able to start stop the service as I get "access denied" ...

    Whatever I try I'm not able to reset the DACL to the default as I keep
    getting "access denied" messages. I tried to do the following without

    Can someone tell me how can I restore the default DACL on this service?

    Thank you very much!!!!
