Need  help in modifying Powershell script to list service with specific pattern and its status ?

Hi All,

Can anyone here please assist me in modifying the Powershell script below so that it can go through the list of servers within the specific OU and then list all of the service with the name that has the keyword " *Application 1*" along with the server name, service name, service running status, Startup Status and the service account running  ?

Because there are about 3-4 services per server with the keyword " *Application 1*" like:

Application 1 Watcher
Application 1 Server
Application 1 Updater


$path = "C:\TEMP\"
$serverlist = Get-ADComputer -Properties Name -Filter {Enabled -eq $True -and OperatingSystem -like "*Windows Server*"} -SearchBase "OU=Servers,DC=domain,DC=com" |
  Where-Object {$_.DistinguishedName -notlike "*OU=Decommissioned Servers,OU=Servers,DC=domain,DC=com"} |
  Where-Object {Test-Connection $_.Name -Count 1 -Quiet}

$servicename = "Application 1"

foreach ($server in $serverlist){
		$servicetorestart = Get-Service -name -Include $servicename -ComputerName $server.Name -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue
		......
		# what else to fill in here
		......
} | Export-Csv -Path $path -NoClobber -NoTypeInformation -UseCulture

Open in new window


Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Use Get-WmiObject instead of Get-Service or you'll have to parse every service from every server. WQL will allow you to filter on the remote server without returning all the servers to be processed on your end.

Get-WmiObject -Query "SELECT Name, DisplayName, State, StartMode, StartName FROM Win32_Service WHERE DisplayName LIKE '%$($servicename)%'"

Hi LearnCTX,

I have modified it into:

$path = "C:\TEMP\"
$serverlist = Get-ADComputer -Properties Name -Filter {Enabled -eq $True -and OperatingSystem -like "*Windows Server*"} -SearchBase "OU=Servers,DC=domain,DC=com" |
  Where-Object {$_.DistinguishedName -notlike "*OU=Decommissioned Servers,OU=Servers,DC=domain,DC=com"} |
  Where-Object {Test-Connection $_.Name -Count 1 -Quiet}

$servicename = "HP Insight"

foreach ($server in $serverlist){
		$Servicelists = Get-WmiObject -Query "SELECT Name, DisplayName, State, StartMode, StartName FROM Win32_Service WHERE DisplayName LIKE '%$($servicename)%'"
} 

$Servicelists | Export-Csv -Path $path\ResultSVC.csv -NoClobber -NoTypeInformation -UseCulture

Open in new window


But somehow there is no error and the .CSV result is empty 0 KB file size ?

Try it like this:
$path = "C:\TEMP"
$ServiceName = "HP Insight"
$SearchBase = "OU=Servers,DC=domain,DC=com"
$Properties = 'Name', 'DisplayName', 'State', 'StartMode', 'StartName'

$ServerList = Get-ADComputer -Properties Name -Filter {Enabled -eq $True -and OperatingSystem -like "*Windows Server*"} -SearchBase $SearchBase |
	Where-Object {$_.DistinguishedName -notlike "*OU=Decommissioned Servers,OU=Servers,DC=domain,DC=com"}

$ServiceList = ForEach ($Server in $ServerList) {
	$(Try {
		Write-Host "Processing $($Server.Name) ..." -ForegroundColor White -NoNewline
		If (-not (Test-Connection -ComputerName $Server.DNSHostName -Count 1 -Quiet)) {
			Throw "Offline"
		}
		Get-WmiObject -Query "SELECT $($Properties -join ',') FROM Win32_Service WHERE DisplayName LIKE '%$($ServiceName)%'" -ErrorAction Stop -ComputerName $Server.DNSHostName
		$Exception = $Null
		Write-Host " OK." -ForegroundColor Green
	} Catch {
		$Exception = $_.Exception.Message
		''
		Write-Host " $($Exception)" -ForegroundColor Red
	}) | Select-Object -Property (@(@{n='ComputerName'; e={$Server.Name}}) + $Properties + @{n='Exception'; e={$Exception}})
}

$ServiceList | Export-Csv -Path $path\ResultSVC.csv -NoClobber -NoTypeInformation -UseCulture

Try below code:

$datetime = Get-Date -Format DDMMYYY_HHmm
$Scriptdir = Split-Path -Path $MyInvocation.MyCommand.Definition -Parent
$ServerTest = $Scriptdir + "\ServertestReport_$datetime.txt"
$ExportFilepath = $ScriptDir + "\ServiceStatus_$DateTime.csv"
$serverlist = Get-ADComputer -Filter {(Enabled -eq $True) -and (OperatingSystem -like "*Windows Server*")} -SearchBase "OU=Servers,DC=domain,DC=com" | ?{$_.DistinguishedName -notlike "*OU=Decommissioned Servers,OU=Servers,DC=domain,DC=com"}
  
foreach ($server in $serverlist) {
        if (Test-Connection -ComputerName $($server.DNSHostName) -Count 1 -Quiet)
        { "$($Server.DNSHostname), Contacted successfully" | Out-File $ServerTest -Append -Force
        $services = Get-WmiObject Win32_Service -ComputerName $($server.DNSHostName) -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue | ?{$_.DisplayName -match "Application 1"}
        $services | Select-Object Name, DisplayName, State, Status, StartName, SystemName, StartMode | Export-Csv -Path $ExportFilepath -NoTypeInformation
       }
       else { 
                "$($Server.DNSHostname), failed to connect" | Out-File $ServerTest -Append -Force 
            }
    }

Many thanks for the suggestion and the codes people,

However in some of the Windows Server 2012 R2 VMs, I get:

The RPC server is unavailable. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x800706BA)

is it because the service is non existent or is it because of the Symantec Firewall ?

That's probably because of the Firewall then. The error means that the WMI query failed, so it didn't even get access to query the services.

Thanks All for the suggestion and the solution.

OBDA solution works great.

Mahesh, your script is partially works:
result filename is ServiceStatus_DD11YYYY_0938.csv and the content is not showing when modifying the line
 $services = Get-WmiObject Win32_Service -ComputerName $($server.DNSHostName) -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue | ?{$_.DisplayName -like "HP Insight"}

you need to use
?{$_.DisplayName -match "HP Insight"}
