Using VBScript to start the browser service (Uses ADSI):


Const ADS_SERVICE_STOPPED = 0x00000001

'Status                         Constant
'ADS_SERVICE_STOPPED            0x00000001
'ADS_SERVICE_START_PENDING      0x00000002

'ADS_SERVICE_RUNNING            0x00000004
'ADS_SERVICE_CONTINUE_PENDING   0x00000005
'ADS_SERVICE_PAUSE_PENDING      0x00000006
'ADS_SERVICE_PAUSED             0x00000007
'ADS_SERVICE_ERROR              0x00000008

Or, if you want to do it with WMI (browser example again):

Set System = GetObject("winmgmts:{impersonationlevel=impersonate}!Win32_Service.Name=Browser")

System.StartService

I'd imagine you could also just use "NET START <service>" where service is the service name found under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services

leew, yeah, I'd suggest good 'ole batch for NT4, but as we're in the brave new world of W2K, lets make the most of the scripting features now available to us.  Once you've learn't (even some of it) it's much more powerful.

hmmm....
I am actually trying to start/stop Oracle DBMS services in win2k environment...I don't want to go to services....and click click.......
let's say Oracle services are called X and Y ...so if I pass these two parameter to a windows script then it would be good if I start/stop Oracle.....

any comments.....

Create a script called "ToggleService.vbs" as below:

'Toggle service(s) (passed as params) state between stop/started
Const ADS_SERVICE_STOPPED = 0x00000001

If Wscript.Arguments.Count > 0 Then
Do While iArg <= Wscript.arguments.Count - 1
    Call ToggleServ(Wscript.arguments.Item(iArg)
Loop


Sub ToggleServ(ByVal Name)
Set oService = GetObject("WinNT://./")
If oService.Status = ADS_SERVICE_STOPPED Then
    oService.Start
Else
    oService.Stop
End If
Set oService = Nothing
End Sub



Then invoke the script from a cmd line with:

cscript ToggleService.vbs  ServiceX ServiceY

Or create a shortcut to do this for you.

Or change the script to either just start, and have another that just stops the services you specify.

It gives error in line

const ADS_SERVICE_STOPPED = 0x00000001

"expected end of statement"

????

Make sure there are no spurious trailing characters.

Try changing to:

Const ADS_SERVICE_STOPPED = 1

OR

Dim ADS_SERVICE_STOPPED
ADS_SERVICE_STOPPED = 1


I'm puzzled as to why you get that error.
