Hi Guys

Im new to this community hello everyone

I need a small favor with a script

Is it possible to modify the following script to monitor Critical services on AD and exchange
I Put this together to monitor the dropbox process on a file server some time back

$ProcessActive=[bool](Get-Process Dropbox -ea "silentlycontinue")

      if($ProcessActive)
      {
            Stop-Process -processname Dropbox
            Out-File -filepath "D:\DropBox-Conflicted Copy logs\process_Logfile.txt" -InputObject "process is Running - Process terminated" -force
                        
                  $body = "DropBox - No conflicted files"

                  Send-MailMessage -SmtpServer EXCH01 -From admin@blahblah.com -To alerts@blahblah.co.uk -Subject 'DropBox Process Status' -Body $body

      }else
      {
            Out-File -filepath "D:\DropBox-Conflicted Copy logs\process_Logfile.txt" -InputObject "process is not Running - No action required" -force
                        
                  $body = "process is not Running - No action required"
                  Send-MailMessage -SmtpServer EXCH01 -From admin@blahblah.com -To alerts@blahblah.co.uk -Subject 'DropBox Process Status' -Body $body
      }

BTW, it is much more convenient to "simplify" your code, putting the same code parts together:
$ProcessActive=[bool](Get-Process Dropbox -ea "silentlycontinue")
if($ProcessActive) 
{
  Stop-Process -processname Dropbox
  $body = "DropBox - No conflicted files"
} else {
  $body = "process is not Running - No action required"
}
Out-File -filepath "D:\DropBox-Conflicted Copy logs\process_Logfile.txt" -InputObject $body  -force
Send-MailMessage -SmtpServer EXCH01 -From admin@blahblah.com -To alerts@blahblah.co.uk -Subject 'DropBox Process Status' -Body $body
