I’m watching the PowerShell Jumpstart om MVA and I’ve been trying to get a list of services running on remote computers:
Get-Service -Computername <romote computer name>
and I always get the error message: Cannot open Service Control Manager on computer <name>
Both computers are Windows Server 2012 R2 machines.
I’ve found out that the user performing the query has to be a member of the local Administrators group on the remote computer.
I took care of it with a GPO by adding my domain Administrator’s account to the built-in Administrators group using the “Create” option.
The thing still doesn’t work and I’ve been unable to find further help.
Thanks for any help in advance!
