Network accounts that start NT services?

By CompHelpNJ ·
Is there anyway of determining the network account that had started each service on a Windows NT Server or Windows NT Workstation machine? This info is clearly shown on Windows 2000 machines, but I haven't figured out a way to obtain this info for Windows NT.

Thanks.

It's hard to remember back to my NT days, but you might try looking in the registry. The HKLM/System/Current Control Set/Services hive contains all of the service information. If the service requires an account logon to start, it is listed in the attributes of the service as "ObjectName" and is a REG_SZ value. For example, if the service uses the local system account, the ObjectName attribute has "Local System" as a value.

Hope this helps!

Hi there

I had the same problem only a couple of weeks ago...

The easiset way I found was to open the services applet on an XP machine, then click on "Action" then "Connect to another computer". Type the name of the NT box you need, and all the info will be displayed including the "Log on as".

Hope this helps.

Your suggestion was perfect - just what I was looking for. I'm glad I finally found a good use for XP.
