    Checking Services on a Remote Machine

    Hi all,

    I am trying to create a program that connects to around one hundred machines, and check the service status of 5 services on each machine. Ideally, the end result would be a huge list of the servers, with failed ones highlighted or something equivalent. I have got the microsoft code to check services on a local machine, but I have no idea how to go about manipulating the code to check a remote server instead. Anyone have any advice any good links?

    VB Code:
    1. For each Service in GetObject("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!//[b]localhost[/b]").ExecQuery("select * from Win32_Service where Name='" & ServiceName & "'")
    2.     MsgBox Service.Name()
    3. Next
