I have a service on  a windows 2003 machine.

The Service Name is Amicus PE Service

The Display Name is Amicus PE Service


The Path to executable is : C:\Amicus\Amicus Attorney PE Server\SmartClient\Server\AmicusAttorney.XOL.ServerService.exe


I want to write a script that stops this service and restarts it.  

I have been trying

Net Stop Amicus PE Service and that does not work.  Any ideals?

Have you tried enclosing the service name in double quotes (like: "Amicus PE Service") when using NET STOP?

Kind regards,

I quickly made a vbs script that will do exactly what you need. It will stop the service, wait 15 seconds, and then restart it. You can modify it if you need.
Make sure you save the file as a .vbs extension.
I got information on how to do this from:
http://www.computerperformance.co.uk/vbscript/wmi_services.htm
I hope this helps. Good luck.


Option Explicit
Dim objWMIService, objItem, objService
Dim colListOfServices, strComputer, strService, intSleep 
strComputer = "."
intSleep = 15000
 
'On Error Resume Next
' NB strService is case sensitive.
strService = " 'Amicus PE Service' "
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:" _
& "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" _
& strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
Set colListOfServices = objWMIService.ExecQuery _
("Select * from Win32_Service Where Name ="_
& strService & " ")
For Each objService in colListOfServices
objService.StopService()
WSCript.Sleep intSleep
objService.StartService()
Next
