this way ? Just provide in current path "servers.txt" one target per line and change "bits" in my example to your desired service
for /f %%i in (servers.txt) do (
for /f "tokens=4" %%a in ('"sc \\%%i query bits |findstr /i "state""') do (
echo %DATE% %TIME% %%i %%a >>log.txt
))

Open in new window


and I used this like chance to refresh my powershell fomatting. Here is PS 3.0 one liner example
Get-Content .\servers.txt | % {Get-Service -ComputerName $_ |? name
 -eq bits} | ft @{n='timestamp';e={get-date}},machinename, status -hide |Out-Str
ing -stream|? length -gt 0 |Out-File .\log.txt -Append -Encoding utf8

Open in new window

Hi Rahul,
1. I can tune for you batch, but need more information. How are you checking the RSA status manually ? Are you going to authentication interface or just queriing its service status? What are the OS on servers and source for checking (your workstation?). Is powershell good for you too?  Please be a bit more descriptive.
2. extending question to different topic is not in line with EE rules.  Please raise extra question for replication checking and be more descriptive on what do you need. What kind of replication? are there exact records you want to be aware of? what should be an action resulting from such check ?

Kind regards, Rasto

HI,

I am using windows xp to RDP to the RSA serevrs.While manual check I mstsc/RDP to each serevr and then check RSA service status manually.For replication checks I filter eventviewer  Appliaction logs with RSA and check replication status for all replicas.Looking for automation/Batch script will be ok.I guess i can not use powershell as I am using xp :(.Kindly advice

Rahul

1. please download and unpack sysinternals suite on your workstation
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb842062.aspx
2. but test connectivity to your remote servers using psservice. From command line in folder where you place sysinternals run:
psservice \\targetserver -u user -p password query rsaservicename
for each your server.
3. if this will work,you can just put all testing lines to one cmd and you have simple script.
4. if it will work you can use similar approach for replications using properly parametrized "psloglist" from suite

Sysinternals are common admin tools from microsoft not 3rd psrty.
Can you try those commands against server(s):
Net use \\server\ipc$ /user:username
It should ask for password. Let me know error if any. If it pass run this
Sc \\server query reservicename
