SC Query Script to only show service name and state

CN.txt - List of computernames
services.txt - list of services to check

@echo off
 for /f %%a in (CN.txt) do (
   echo %%a >> Output.txt
   for /f "tokens=*" %%b in (services.txt) do (
     sc \\%%a query "%%~b" >> Output.txt

How do I clean this script up to only show the Service_Name and state?

It is a bad idea to try to parse sc output that way, because it needs too much effort. Just use PowerShell instead, e.g.
powershell "get-service | format-table -auto name, status"

Open in new window

powershell "get-service | Select name, status | Out-File Output.txt"

Open in new window


How do I use that for one service? the service I am looking for in the "Windows Agent Service"

and how do I add a list of computernames ?
