Powershell script to change service account


Does anyone have a Powershell script to change the credentials used by a Windows service?


Bit easier – use WMI.

$service = gwmi win32_service -computer [computername] -filter "name='whatever'"
$service.change($null,$null,$null,$null,$null,$null,$null,"[email protected]")

Change the service name appropriately in the filter; set the remote computer name appropriately.
