Hi Guys:

I'm trying to count the Stellar process from a remote server, my code snippets is given below:

function GetProcessCount($serverName)
    $serviceArray = Get-WmiObject -class Win32_Service -computerName $serverName ;
    $Counter = 0
    $serviceArray | foreach {
        $serviceinfo = "" | select name, state, status
        $Counter ++;
    write-host "Process count";
    write-host $Counter;
    return $Counter

The above is ok for local, but when I try to a remote machine I get the following error:

Get-WmiObject : Access is denied. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070005 (E_ACCESSDENIED))
At C:\Script\LoginScript_v1.ps1:186 char:31
+ $serviceArray = Get-WmiObject <<<< -class Win32_Service -computerName $serverName ;
+ CategoryInfo : NotSpecified: (Smile | :) [Get-WmiObject], UnauthorizedAccessException
+ FullyQualifiedErrorId : System.UnauthorizedAccessException,Microsoft.PowerShell.Commands.GetWmiObjectCommand

How can I count the process from remote machine.

As far as I know, you will need to have Administration rights in the remote machine.

Try to do the following.

1.Create your user in the remote machine with admin rights
2.Try again

Hope it helps.

Thanks for your clarification, If all the client run the script in that case it should not be a good solution to "create your user in the remote machine with admin rights"
