Monitor eCopy Scan Stations v8.5

We are looking for a solution to monitor and proactivly restart ecopy services on 20-30 scan stations.  We do have netIQ but I feel that is over kill.  Any ideas or does ecopy have something built in that I am over looking?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

here a thought.

create a batch file call ekill.bat

@echo off
cd "change path to ecopy"
taskkill /IM ecopy.exe
START ecopy.exe

you could call the batch file from task manager every few minutes?

Another option is create a winbatch program which can count how many times the program can count how many time it has ran.

That is in the right direction...we are looking for more of a proactive monitor, like if the service is down either restart it or email my team to let us know.
