Hi.

I'm lazy.

I'm REALLY lazy.

I want to stop/start (i.e. restart) services on different servers without having to load up VNC, Computer Management, RDP, etc.

I want a nice simple command line which will do this.

Why on earth does NET NOT support \\server I've no idea.

In truth it is only ever going to be Restart Fax Server and Restart Print Services on 2 different servers.

I have access to the server (physically and logically).

I've tried using SOON but never seem to get it to work.

Any ideas?

Richard.

What you need is right here: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Operating_Systems/WinNT/Q_20896218.html

I'd like to paraphrase PeteLong:

Sc.exe is a tool that provides a way to communicate with the Service Control Manager to retrieve/manage information about services.
Netsvc.exe is a tool to remotely start, stop, and query the status of services from the command line.

You can use these tools to configure the Startup of a service and to remotely Start and Stop a service while registering the change with the Services Control Manager, as long as you have Admin priviledges on both machines.

The following example will configure the Schedule service on \\NTWORK1 to start Automatically, start it, check it's configuration and status:

sc \\NTWORK1 config Schedule start= auto
[SC] ChangeServiceConfig SUCCESS
netsvc /start \\NTWORK1 "Schedule"
Service is pending start on \\NTWORK1
sc \\NTWORK1 qc Schedule
[SC] GetServiceConfig SUCCESS
SERVICE_NAME: Schedule
TYPE : 10 WIN32_OWN_PROCESS
START_TYPE : 2 AUTO_START
ERROR_CONTROL : 1 NORMAL
BINARY_PATH_NAME : C:\WINNT\System32\AtSvc.Exe
LOAD_ORDER_GROUP :
TAG : 0
DISPLAY_NAME : Schedule
DEPENDENCIES :
SERVICE_START_NAME : LocalSystem
netsvc /query \\NTWORK1 "Schedule"
Service is running on \\NTWORK1
