I have the script below that retrieves services from a local computer. I need an Expert to tweak this script so that I can retrieve services from remote computer.

I am not sure if using Psexec will be able to achieve the same goal

Thank you




$style = @"
  <style>
    TABLE {border-collapse: collapse}
    TD {border-width: 1px;padding: 5px;border-style: dotted;border-color: black}
  </style>
"@

Get-WmiObject win32_service |
  % {
    Add-Member -PassThru -InputObject $_ NoteProperty Delayed $(
      if ((Get-ItemProperty "HKLM:System\CurrentControlSet\Services\$($_.Name)").DelayedAutoStart -eq 1) { "x" }
    )
  } |
  select-object DisplayName, State, Startmode, Delayed |
  sort startmode, DisplayName |
  ConvertTo-HTML  -PreContent "<h1>$env:ComputerName</h1>$style" |
  % { $_ -Replace '<th>', '<td><strong>' -Replace '</th>', '</strong></td>'  } |
  Out-File C:\Test.html

Add the -ComputerName parameter to the Get-WMIObject.

$style = @"
  <style>
    TABLE {border-collapse: collapse}
    TD {border-width: 1px;padding: 5px;border-style: dotted;border-color: black}
  </style>
"@

Get-WmiObject win32_service -ComputerName nameofcomputer|
  % {
    Add-Member -PassThru -InputObject $_ NoteProperty Delayed $(
      if ((Get-ItemProperty "HKLM:System\CurrentControlSet\Services\$($_.Name)").DelayedAutoStart -eq 1) { "x" }
    )
  } | 
  select-object DisplayName, State, Startmode, Delayed |
  sort startmode, DisplayName |
  ConvertTo-HTML  -PreContent "<h1>$env:ComputerName</h1>$style" |
  % { $_ -Replace '<th>', '<td><strong>' -Replace '</th>', '</strong></td>'  } |
  Out-File C:\Test.html

one of the errors:

Get-ItemProperty : Cannot find path 'HKLM:\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\FCRegSvc' because it does not exist.

You're right. I didn't see the Get-ItemProperty command in there.

The easiest way would be to go back to the original script and use the Invoke-Command. Save the script and then run:
Invoke-Command -ComputerName server1 -FilePath C:\servicesscript.ps1

Open in new window

If you have a list of computers you want to run it against then you can easily do that by running:
Foreach($srv in (get-content C:\computers.txt)){
    Invoke-Command -ComputerName $srv -FilePath C:\servicesscript.ps1
}

Open in new window

Also, I would change the output path to a centralized location and append the computer name to the file name.

More info on the Invoke-Command and remoting:
