Look for Running Service

4 posts in this topic

We have a program that manages all of our servers and applies policies to these systems. I'm trying to create a script to look for services related to system roles. I have the following script done so far and I'm sure there are a some things wrong with it. One issue is that it doesn't seem to read the text file for the searched term. Any help/guidance would be much appreciated.

;name of the service to look for
$DHCP = 'DHCP Server'
$DNS =  'DNS Server'
$AD =  'Active Directory Domain Services'
;Create folder for text file
DirCreate("C:\ScriptTemp")
;send a list of the services that are running to a file
Run(@ComSpec & " /C " &"net start > C:\ScriptTemp\services.txt",  "", @SW_HIDE)
;read that file
$FileText = FileRead("C:\ScriptTemp\services.txt")
;check for the service name
If StringInStr($FileText, $DHCP) Then
    RegWrite("HKLM\SOFTWARE\Network Associates\ePolicy Orchestrator\Agent\CustomProps", "CustomProps1", "REG_SZ", "DHCP Server")
ElseIf StringInStr($FileText, $DNS) Then
    RegWrite("HKLM\SOFTWARE\Network Associates\ePolicy Orchestrator\Agent\CustomProps", "CustomProps1", "REG_SZ", "DNS Server")
ElseIf StringInStr($FileText, $AD) Then
RegWrite("HKLM\SOFTWARE\Network Associates\ePolicy Orchestrator\Agent\CustomProps", "CustomProps1", "REG_SZ", "Active Directory")
ElseIf ProcessExists("sqlservr.exe") Then
   RegWrite("HKLM\SOFTWARE\Network Associates\ePolicy Orchestrator\Agent\CustomProps", "CustomProps1", "REG_SZ", "SQL Server")
ElseIf ProcessExists("SPWRITER.exe") Then
   RegWrite("HKLM\SOFTWARE\Network Associates\ePolicy Orchestrator\Agent\CustomProps", "CustomProps2", "REG_SZ", "SharePoint Server")
Elseif ProcessExists("mad.exe") Then
   RegWrite("HKLM\SOFTWARE\Network Associates\ePolicy Orchestrator\Agent\CustomProps", "CustomProps3", "REG_SZ", "Exchange Server")
EndIf
;delete the text file and folder
FileDelete("C:\ScriptTemp\services.txt")
DirRemove("C:\ScriptTemp")

Well, it's only going to look for the first item it finds in the text file and then exit because you're using an If/Then to check for the string, but not checking for any other strings that might be there. You're going to have to do it differently, maybe something like this would work better.

;name of the service to look for
$aServices[3] = ['DHCP Server', 'DNS Server', 'Active Directory Domain Services']
;Create folder for text file
DirCreate("C:ScriptTemp")
;send a list of the services that are running to a file
Run(@ComSpec & " /C " & "net start > C:ScriptTempservices.txt", "", @SW_HIDE)
;read that file
$FileText = FileRead("C:ScriptTempservices.txt")
;check for the service name
For $I = 0 To 2
     If StringInStr($FileText, $aServices[$I]) Then
          RegWrite("HKLMSOFTWARENetwork AssociatesePolicy OrchestratorAgentCustomProps", "CustomProps1", "REG_SZ", $aServices[$I])
     EndIf
Next
If ProcessExists("sqlservr.exe") Then RegWrite("HKLMSOFTWARENetwork AssociatesePolicy OrchestratorAgentCustomProps", "CustomProps1", "REG_SZ", "SQL Server")
If ProcessExists("SPWRITER.exe") Then RegWrite("HKLMSOFTWARENetwork AssociatesePolicy OrchestratorAgentCustomProps", "CustomProps2", "REG_SZ", "SharePoint Server")
If ProcessExists("mad.exe") Then RegWrite("HKLMSOFTWARENetwork AssociatesePolicy OrchestratorAgentCustomProps", "CustomProps3", "REG_SZ", "Exchange Server")
;delete the text file and folder
FileDelete("C:ScriptTempservices.txt")
DirRemove("C:ScriptTemp")

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

Thanks!! That works better then the way I was doing it. If I wanted to write all the detected service running to the regkey could I just write the results to an array then write whats in the array to the regkey?

If I wanted to post multiple detections to the string would pasting the strings to a text file then copy the text when its over and pasting that to the registry key be the most efficient way?
