Hi guys!

I have a script Id like to write that could do the following.

checkservice.pl -s <servicename> -f <filename>
where:
<servicename> is the name of the service
<filename> is the name of a file that holds a list of computers to process.

What it would do is:

a) Read the filename
b) Connect to each machine
c) Run an sc query \\$system name <$servicename> on each computer in the <filename>
d) Write to the terminal window, and the same standard out, to a file called either running.txt, or stopped.txt, or other.txt, depending on the STATE row of the status, as in the following example;

C:\Documents and Settings\shell>sc query wzcsvc

SERVICE_NAME: wzcsvc
        TYPE               : 20  WIN32_SHARE_PROCESS
        STATE              : 4  RUNNING
                                (STOPPABLE,NOT_PAUSABLE,ACCEPTS_SHUTDOWN)
        WIN32_EXIT_CODE    : 0  (0x0)
        SERVICE_EXIT_CODE  : 0  (0x0)
        CHECKPOINT         : 0x0
        WAIT_HINT          : 0x0

So, in the above, output to the terminal would be:

ComputerName             $ServiceName                  $Status
eg.
COMPUTER023              wzcsvc                          RUNNING

The above line would also be written to running.txt

So, output to the screen for a list of machines would be:

COMPUTER023              wzcsvc                          RUNNING
COMPUTER023              wzcsvc                          STOPPED
COMPUTER912              wzcsvc                          RUNNING
COMPUTER41                wzcsvc                          PAUSED

The stopped entries go to stopped.txt.
The running entries go to running.txt
Anything else, goes to other.txt

Any help appreciated.
