    Is there a way to have a job on a Windows Agent "Run as Administrator"?

    We are trying to use Automic to start and stop a service. When we run it manually on the machine, as the same user that Automic uses, it works, but when using the Schedule to execute it it hangs.

    it sounds like a right is missing. 

    Try this - 
    Create a .bat file with the command. 
    From a cmd.exe window, execute the .bat file.

    (This is essentially what the OS Agent does.)

    What is the command in the Windows job?
    In some of my jobs that stop and start a service, I use the command 'net start <service>' and 'net stop <service>.
    I found the commands on Technet.

    You can also check to see if the user running the Agent has the right 'Log on as Batch Job' 

    Found mention of higher authorizations in the documentation.
