Could someone please enlighten me as to how do the following.
From time to time I need to shut down an application that runs as a service on a large number of servers, the service that requires shutting down can take anything from 30-60 mins and following a successful shutdown I need to run a súpplíed batch file that will that will run updates against this application.
Where I am stuck is on how to get a batch file to pick up on sc query "state stopped" on each server and if the service has stopped for the batch file to kick in.
So I am assuming the simplified order of this is.
2.Run sc query
3.If state stopped then run supplied_update.bat
4.If not wait or check again in 30 mins etc
