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)

private function StopService(strService,strComputer)

Try this.
sc query "kserver" | find /i "state" | find /i "running"
if errorlevel 1 (
    taskkill /f /im kaseya.exe
    sc start "kserver"
)

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"
)
