try this

Get-Process -ComputerName server-exam01 dp* | select StartTime

script
Powershell script is case sensitive

I have run for local computer, and i got above result. it should work on remote computer too

@takecoffee
in this case powersehll is not case sensitive.
i can run Get-Process  *r* | select name,StaRttiMe
and it will work fine, its not the issue.

That seems to be a bug with Get-Process command in collecting process details.. If remoting enabled on server server-exam01 then you can try..

Invoke-command -ComputerName server-exam01 -scriptblock {Get-Process dp* | select starttime}

Open in new window


Else try with WMI..
get-WmiObject Win32_Process -computername server-exam01 | ? {$_.name -like "dp*"} | Select Name,@{N="CreationDate";E={[System.Management.ManagementDateTimeconverter]::ToDateTime($_.CreationDate)}}

Open in new window

It is not a bug, it's a feature. Many properties of processes are available only on the local machine. The StartTime property is one of them (see NotSupportedException in http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.diagnostics.process.starttime.aspx).

It's for creating a custom property..

N= is short form of Name=
E= is short form of Expression=
