This is great and all but this is not really a Serv-U issue but rather the default SFTP service for the Orion that is used for Network Configuration Manager.

This is a standard error message from Windows when you...er...don't have enough privileges to perform an operation, in this case starting or stopping a system-level service.  To get around it, you can launch your Windows Services control panel "As An Administrator" and/or launch your command line prompt "As An Administrator" and then start the appropriate service from either interface.
