Wait until Service is stopped before continuing script

4 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hey all,

I wrote a script to backup a MS SQL database and some files to another directory.

My question is how is it possible to wait until the MS SQL service is stopped before continuing the script and copying the database and the other files.

I tried to realize this with a while loop but i doesn't work.

This is the part of the script which doesn't want to work as I want it to:

;Shutdown SQL-Server
_RunDOS("sc stop " & $sqlinstancename)

$statusservice = _Service_QueryStatus($sqlinstancename)
While $statusservice[1] <> 1
 Sleep(5000)
WEnd

For the function _Service_QueryStatus I use the UDF Services.au3, the function returns 1 for Array[1] if service is stopped. If Service isn't stopped I want the script to wait five seconds until rechecking the state.

But this doesn't work :)

Thanks for help.

The easiest i can thing of is to use RunWait to stop the service .

@edit

Scratch that it doesnt work - the CMD command doesnt wait until the service is stopped to complete and exit.

Hi,

you have to refresh the $statusservice in between the While loop, otherwise it won't change and loop for ever:

$statusservice = _Service_QueryStatus($sqlinstancename)
While $statusservice[1] <> 1
   Sleep(5000)
   $statusservice = _Service_QueryStatus($sqlinstancename)
WEnd
