Get-Service from Remote Server

Hi everyone,

I have written a script that displays the event log data between midnight and 03:00 works fine but when I also try and use get-service I see the following error :

Get-service : Cannot open Service Control Manager on computer 'server01.domain.com'. This operation might require other privileges.
At C:\_PSScripts\Event Logs\EventLogCheck.ps1:15 char:5
+     Get-service -computername $Server -displayname easyjet* | Format-table Statu ...
+     ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    + CategoryInfo          : NotSpecified: (:) [Get-Service], InvalidOperationException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : System.InvalidOperationException,Microsoft.PowerShell.Commands.GetServiceCommand

Here is the script :

$HostName = Get-Content 'C:\_PSScripts\Event Logs\Docklands\DocklandsServers.txt'

$Credentials = get-credential

foreach ($server in $hostname)

{

    $server | %{Get-WinEvent -ComputerName $_ -FilterHashtable @{LogName='System'; starttime=([datetime]::Today); endtime=([datetime]::Today.AddHours(3))} -Credential $Credentials} | select MachineName, ID, ProviderName, TimeCreated, Message | format-table * -autosize | out-default

   Get-service -computername $Server -displayname windows* | Format-table Status, Name -autosize | out-default
}

First try No. 3 from the following possible solutions and
Secondly, see that the servername is correct in the text file and there are no extra characters:

1. Restart the services on both machines
2. Try to run on both the remote and local machines:
Enable-PSRemoting

3. Are you entering DomainName\UserName when the script is asking for Credentials?

4. Update to Powershell version 3.0 on both client and server and it should work.

Updating to WMI 3.0 will install PS ver. 3.0 as well.
