I want to manage the Windows Services running on a server from my machine, so I do the following:
- open my local Services Management Console (services.msc)
- right click the machine node and click "Connect to another computer..."
- enter the other mahine's IP (pause of 20-30 seconds)
- I'm connected to the remote machine and everything works fine - I can stop start services remotely.
I've also tried to automate this as part of a deployment, using the sc commandline utility to perform the same tasks and the 20-30 seconds delay is still there.
Is there a way to get rid of the connection delay?
My machine is a Windows 7 Professional x64 and the server is a Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard.
