Hello,

I'm implementing a Kaseya Server with Vmware snapshots. When snapshot take in place, service "kserver" didn't respond (it's not possible start, stop or restart service), workaround, seemed to kill process kaseya, then restart service.

Can anyone help me to make a batch file that, in first place check is service kaseya is running or not, and in case of not, kill the process and then restart the service?.  The idea is put this batch file in a scheduled task.

Would be interesting use command "sc", instead net start/stop...

Thank you

Hello

This script should work I think. You have to change the service to the correct one.

Regards Tompa
Dim strService

Dim strComputer

Dim objWMIService, objItem, objService

Dim colListOfServices
 

strComputer = "." ' Localhost

strService = "Alerter" ' Displayname of service
 

Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")

set colListOfServicesStatus = objWMIService.ExecQuery ("Select * from Win32_Service Where DisplayName ='" & strService & "'")

	

	for each objServiceState in colListOfServicesStatus

		ServiceState = objServiceState.State

		if ServiceState <> "Running"  then

			if ServiceState = "Stopped" Then 

				StartService strService,strComputer

			else 

				StopService strService,strComputer

				StartService strService,strComputer

			end if

		end if 

	next

wscript.Quit(99)
 

'========================== StopService(strService,strComputer)========================================

private function StopService(strService,strComputer)

	Dim objWMIService, objItem, objService

Sure no problem.

We'll use tasklist to find if it is a running process.
sc query "kserver" | find /i "state" | find /i "running"

if errorlevel 1 (

    tasklist /fi "imagename eq kaseya.exe" | find /i "kaseya.exe"

    if not errorlevel 1 taskkill /f /im kaseya.exe

    sc start "kserver"

)
