Hi,

Can someone share some handy powershell or vb script to run on either server 2003 and 2008 to check if all services set to automatic are running and its uptime and dump the results to a text file.

Thanks!!!

Test if this works on PS2:
Get-CimInstance win32_service -Filter "startmode = 'auto' AND state != 'running'" -ComputerName computername | export-csv report.csv

Uptime can be found via

$wmi = Get-WmiObject -Class Win32_OperatingSystem
$wmi.LocalDateTime - $wmi.LastBootUpTime

Something like this should work:

$Results = @()
gc serverlist.txt | % {
$computer = $_
$lastboottime = (Get-WmiObject -Class Win32_OperatingSystem -computername $computer).LastBootUpTime
$sysuptime = (Get-Date) – [System.Management.ManagementDateTimeconverter]::ToDateTime($lastboottime) 
$uptimer = $sysuptime.days "days" $sysuptime.hours "hours" $sysuptime.minutes "minutes" $sysuptime.seconds "seconds" 
$slist = gwmi Win32_Service-computername $computer | where {$_.StartMode -ne "Auto"} | select Name
$results += $computer $uptimer $slist

}
$Results | out-file reportfile.csv

@becraig: looks good, but the requirement was services with automatic startup that are running.

So something like (untested):
$slist = gwmi Win32_Service -computername $computer | where {$_.StartMode -eq "Auto" -and $_.State -eq "Running"} | select Name

Thanks Dan, update:

$Results = @()
$Results += 
@"
Server, Service, StartMode, State, Uptime
"@
gc serverlist.txt | % {
$computer = $_
$lastboottime = (Get-WmiObject -Class Win32_OperatingSystem -computername $computer).LastBootUpTime
$sysuptime = (Get-Date) – [System.Management.ManagementDateTimeconverter]::ToDateTime($lastboottime) 
$uptimer = $sysuptime.days "days" $sysuptime.hours "hours" $sysuptime.minutes "minutes" $sysuptime.seconds "seconds" 
$slist = gwmi Win32_Service-computername $computer
$slist | % {
$svcmode = $_.StartMode; $svcname = $_.Name; $svcstate = $_.State 
$Results += "$computer, $svcname, $svcstate, $svcmode, $uptimer"
}
}
$Results | out-file reportfile.csv

@becraig: tried it and it threw an error on line 10. Had to rewrite it like this:
$uptimer = "$($sysuptime.days) days, $($sysuptime.hours) hours, $($sysuptime.minutes) minutes, $($sysuptime.seconds) seconds"

Ok fixed it:


$Results = @()
$Results += 
@"
Server`tService`tState`tStartMode`tLastBoot
"@
gc serverlist.txt | % {
$computer = $_
$LastBoot = (Get-WmiObject -Class Win32_OperatingSystem -computername $computer) | %{$_.ConverttoDateTime($_.LastBootUpTime)}

$slist = gwmi Win32_Service -computername $computer
$slist | % {
$svcmode = $_.StartMode; $svcname = $_.Name; $svcstate = $_.State 
$Results += "$computer`t$svcname`t$svcstate`t$svcmode`t$Lastboot"
}
}
$Results | out-file reportfile.csv

Did this provide the desired result ?

Or do you need any additional help with this.
