C# and services on remote computer RRS feed

  • Question

  • I want to retrieve status of particular service , which is running or stopped on remote computer. Only permission to that remote computer I have is for "Performance Monitor" . So when I use "

    ServiceController.GetServices(RemoteHostName)" it doesn't work because of permission issue. Is there any way to retrive status of service ?(e.g. Using WMI or Performance Monitor group)

  • Unless you have a wider spectrum of permissions I believe you cannot. It is up to your system administrator to allocate additional permissions to you.
