Hi

This is definitely possible and really easy, let me know what exactly you require and I will be more than happy to help.

Do you have a list of servers ?

Have a look at a few of my Orchestrator Articles as well to give you more ideas.

Thanks

Hi Prasad

Sure, is it just a single server with multiple windows services that you would like to restart, do you also need to restart them at a certain time of day or week ?

You can do a really simple runbook like the following :

Restart Services RunbookThe above is a really simple runbook that you can have running and set a time or date that it needs to repeat, you can also add a schedule which it would check as well.

Monitor Date/TimeHere you can set the schedule that it will actually fire off

Restart ServiceAnd then this should be the same for all the others with the exception of the service name.

Like I said this is really simple, you could also add conditions on the links to only continue to the next restart service if the previous one was a success, you could also add a "check service status" or even mail you if one of the restarts fail, log an event and create a SCOM alert.

Possibilities are endless :)

Hope this helps

Leon

Is there a way in figure 1 .. Instead of 3 services are designed cant it be one and restart 3 services may be lopping or any other... If we have 6 services ..We need to create 3 stop / start services..

  I need a single stop /start object and it will be restarting many depending on the input provided

Thanks,
Prasad

Hi

Yes sure you can, you could list the service names in a text file and then use the read line activity and have that pass the service name one at a time to the restart service activity therefore having 2 activities only which one of them would be the restart service.

Look at the attached files

Goodluck

Thanks
