How to restart a service through group policy.
Posted on 2011-02-21
I have a non-system service that runs on multiple servers on our network. The service was installed by a 3rd party piece of software. The service is required for this software to work. I need to know how to set this service to auto restart if it fails. I know locally on the machine there is a recovery tab for services where you can set the first failure, second failure, and subsequent failures responses. I'm having trouble finding a way to do this using GPO. I'd like to avoid a script if possible, but I think I may not be able to. I am running Server 2008.
