The periodic verification of running Windows services can provide high availability. Runbooks can also restart failed services that are not running. Find out how to make this happen in this video.
- [Instructor] One of the core responsibilities…of an IT support technician is to make sure…that IT systems that support business processes…are always up and running.…And so in this demo, we'll follow down…that road by monitoring a Windows service periodically.…Periodically means ideally we want a recurrent schedule,…and this we can do using the monitor date/time activity.…We'll then use the get service status activity…to check to see whether or not a service…is running on a host.…We'll then use the start/stop service activity…to start something that isn't running…that should be, and if we have to start a service…that should've been running, we'll probably…want to write a log message or send some kind…of an email alert.…
In this case, we'll send an event log message…using the send event log message activity.…And as always, when planning our runbooks,…we have to consider where will the data come from?…In this case, where is the name of the computer…or computers that we want to check services,…where's that going to come from?…
