List of Windows Services that should run automatically on Windows Server 2012 R2

Hi Experts,

I'm looking for a list of default Windows Services that should run automatically on a Windows Server 2012 R2 machine. I need it to configure my monitoring tool to check if those services are actually running.

Next are list of services that are server role specific. For example what services should run on a Domain Controller in addition to the default services. And so on for every server role.

I've searched for lists like that on the internet, but nothing so far.  Can anyone help me with this?

If you have such a server as you describe the services that should run automatically are marked automatic in Admin Tools - Services.  Further you may want to set your RMM tool to check on those that are marked "manual" but are also started when you restart.  

It might be easier to check for the error condition that occurs when a service fails to start.
