    $Username = 'domain\username'
    $Password = 'password'
    $pass = ConvertTo-SecureString -AsPlainText $Password -Force

    $SecureString = $pass
    # Users you password securly
    $MySecureCreds = New-Object -TypeName System.Management.Automation.PSCredential -ArgumentList Username,$SecureString

    gwmi win32_service –credential $MySecureCreds

    I get : This command cannot be run due to the error : the user name or password is incorrect

    If I use an admin username and password it work!

    Can someone help?

    In your ArgumentList you are missing a $ in front of Username.

    Just to help somebodey taht ever come here for the same probleme!

    my internal domain name was : myinternalverylongdomainname.local

    So my username are  normally  : myinternalverylongdomainname\username

    In this case, the pre-windows 2000 name domain was "myinternal"

    So for the powershell get-credential to work I had to use myinternal\username

    Maybe it by design, but on the 350 domains that I manage it the only one with a such long internal domain name.

    David,

    How long is the domain name and user name each? Based on my testing Get-Credential is supporting up to 83 characters for the user and domain name. This was validated using UserPrincipalName and NT Login (Domain\UserName).

    20 for domain name and 10 for username

    I dont have any such long name like that on any of my other setup

    I spent a lot of time before I figure it out.

    I will try to reproduce this on a temp setup this week to see.
