Hi ,

We have a developed a windows application using c# to start/stop/execute a service (windows service written in .Net) on a remote server.

I need to maintain log information for the current logon user who started /stopped/executed the service on the remote server.That means on the remote server we need details(current logon user who invoked the service) in the  event viewer . How can I achieve this?

Basically we have 3 buttons for start,stop,execute functions and below is simplified piece of code and need to maintan user log information(machine name/current logon user)  on remote server Event viewer.

//  start / stop / execute buttons

try

{

servicecontroller sc =new servicecontroller(servicename,machinename)

sc.start();

}

catch(exeception ex)

{

}

I think the only option to get  current logon deails on remote server  is to create a webservice and host it on the remote server - This webservice has methods for creating event log entries. We need to pass the logged in user information to the webservice which will create the events
