Dear All,

I need your help, I would like to list all Service Accounts used on Services, but we have to ignore the Services that use "LocalSystem - Local Service - Network Service"

I would like to see "Service Name" & "Service Account" for each service in Excel file if is possible.

e.g.

I would like to specify mutiple computers, because I have to gather all service accounts used.


Thanks in advance,

Thanks,

Just to change something I would like to change the where I would like only include the startname that start with "domain\"

And the last think is how can I specify .txt file to read the servers and execute the same query in all servers?.

Thanks in advance,

I just filter only by the accounts with specific domains:

gwmi win32_service | where {($_.startname -like "domain\*")} | select name, startname, caption | Export-Csv c:test.csv
 

Could you please help me to run in multiple servers? I would like to read .txt file with all servernames.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

There are a couple of approaches you can adopt. You can lump all your servers together:
$Servers = Get-Content MyList.txt
Get-WmiObject Win32_Service -Filter "StartName LIKE "domain\\%" -ComputerName $Servers |
  Select-Object Name, StartName, Caption | Export-Csv c:\test.csv -NoTypeInformation

Open in new window

Alternatively, you can manually loop, which is perhaps a bit more fault tolerant:
Get-Content MyList.txt | ForEach-Object {
  Get-WmiObject Win32_Service -Filter "StartName LIKE "domain\\%" -ComputerName $_
} | Select-Object Name, StartName, Caption | Export-Csv c:\test.csv -NoTypeInformation

Open in new window

I moved your Where-Object filter into the Filter parameter in the WMI query, it's a bit more efficient, if you get your head around the syntax :) % is equivalent to *, and we have to escape \ with another \.

Apologies, I thought I fixed that.
Get-Content MyList.txt | ForEach-Object {
  Get-WmiObject Win32_Service -Filter "StartName LIKE 'domain\\%'" -ComputerName $_
} | Select-Object Name, StartName, Caption | Export-Csv c:\test.csv -NoTypeInformation

Open in new window

We can either take the value from the file we read, or we can pick on one of the values it returns. This version picks on the returned values, it's simpler :)
Get-Content MyList.txt | ForEach-Object {
  Get-WmiObject Win32_Service -Filter "StartName LIKE 'domain\\%'" -ComputerName $_
} | Select-Object SystemName, Name, StartName, Caption | Export-Csv c:\test.csv -NoTypeInformation
