Hello all!
I am wondering if any of you out in techland can give me acces to a sample script to restart a service if it fails. I am using a managed server system that allows me to use scripts if certain issues arise. The script is basically as follows;

Step one - Check to see if the MSExchangeMGMT service is running.

Step two - If it is running do nothing, if it ISNT running then step three

Step Three - Restart the MSExchangeMGMT service.

The problem is for some reasion this service keeps stopping and I have to manually start it. Not sure what the cause for the stoppage is, no alerts, event log entries, etc; however it does just restart without issues until the next time it stops.

Any help would be greatly appreciated...I will keep scouring the knowledge base!!

You should also check the recover options under the service properties and make sure its set to restart itself. And clear the fail count.
