I am typing this same command from two different accounts:

query process <process name>.exe /server:<server name>

From account A, it returns the list of processes on the server as expected.

From account B, it simply says No Process exists for <process name>.

Of course, this means account B does not have permissions to view the processes on this server.

What settings do I need to change so that account B has permissions to view this? (My account is account A and I have administrator privileges to change all accounts.)

Both account A and B are admins, so there must be some specific setting in B preventing it from accessing this information.

    Is this over a network? If so, account B needs also to have permissions over the other computer. – harrymc Nov 20 '18 at 20:16
  • @harrymc Aha, that explains it. Thank you! – ImaginaryHuman072889 Nov 20 '18 at 21:01
  • I see that this is the problem, so I converted my comment to an answer. – harrymc Nov 20 '18 at 21:04
  • @harrymc Upvoted and accepted. – ImaginaryHuman072889 Nov 20 '18 at 21:10
  • @harrymc I thought for sure this was the issue but I came in to work today and found that account B has permissions on the other computer, so this is a separate issue. Do you think I should modify this existing question or create a new question? – ImaginaryHuman072889 Nov 21 '18 at 16:27

Is this is over a network, then account B needs also to have permissions over the other computer.
