I need to stop service on remote machine. The problem is that service name contains whitespaces, and I get a message, that such service does not exist.
sc \\machine stop "service name"
How can I fix it? Thanks

If you go into the Services admin console and double-click the service, you should see that the service has a "Service name" that is shorter and has no white space, you can use this name instead of the full display name.
For this service below, that has spaces in its display name, you would use this command line:
sc \\machine stop adobearmservice
