Hello all,

I want to stop a specific windows service using powershell and if it fails to stop, want to force stop using the script.
All I want to do is to schedule the script which will stop the service and force stop if it does not stop.

Even in case the service will not stop is there any possibility to check or get a notification that it has not stopped.
In one of the maintenance we are suppose to login to 100 servers to stop one service and run a script to start the application maintenance which is taking a long time. Any idea will be appreciated and of great help

Urgent :(

$arrService = Get-Service -Name $ServiceName



if ($arrService.Status -eq "Running"){
stop-Service $ServiceName -Force }

This script will stop service "Winrm" on all computers in file servesrs.txt


$comp = Get-Content -Path 'C:\it\servers.txt'
 


ForEach  ($obj in $comp) {


Invoke-Command -ComputerName $obj -ScriptBlock{


$ServiceName = "WinRM"


$arrService = Get-Service -Name $ServiceName 



if ($arrService.Status -eq "Running"){
stop-Service $ServiceName -Force }

}

}

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

Hi Benjamin, Thank you so much for the script, yes it works but what I am looking here is to stop a particular service at server local time 8:00 PM, and we have server in different time zones? IS there any thing we can add to the script to work?

If possible it will be of a good learning to me as well.

Or I should use the first script you gave and setup a schedule task to run at local time on all servers...
