Get-service and Get-WmiObject win32_service return very different list of services
Posted on 2013-10-26
When I run the powershell commands on my Exchange Server, Get-service and Get-WmiObject win32_service I get very different lists of services. The Get-WmiObject command only returns 11 services, while the Get-service command returns the long list of services that you see when you open the services applet.
This does not seem to be the case on my domain controller, where both commands return a long list of services.
Why would there be a difference?
