I double-checked, and found out that it's the rpcclient supplied with
samba-tng which has service-control.

from 'man rpcclient' from a samba-tng system:

Service Control

              These commands provide functionality similar to the
              Windows NT Service Control Manager.

              It  is  possible to use command-line completion (if
              you have the  GNU  readline  library)  for  Service
              names, by pressing the tab key.

              [-i] Lists Services.

              <service> Service Information

              <service> [arg 0] [arg 1] ... Start Service

              <service> Stop Service

I'm not sure this is what you want. Perhaps somebody has a
different solution...
