Help with the PowerShell Run Command Script

Greetings all,
I'm trying to use the PowerShell Run Command Script to collect service status information but I can't seem to get it to do what I want and could use a little help. The command I am running is "Get-CimInstance -ClassName Win32_Service -Filter "Startmode='Auto'" | Select-Object Name,@{n="Started";e={[int]$_.Started}}" and I am trying to collect data on it. Service started is 1 and stopped is 0.

Basically the end result is I need to build a report around a group of services on select services to list them as running/stopped. I'm doing this in SSRS. I tried using the NT_ServiceDown script but it collects data on all services, not just the ones set to automatic, (I just put a support request in on that).

If I could get the PS script to collect that data that would be great. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Hope I make sense here in what I am trying to do.

Re: Help with the PowerShell Run Command Script


The PowerShell command you are provide is returning status based on all services set to Automatic. The NT_ServiceDown *does* provide this capability. If you enter an asterisk/star in the Services to monitor field then choose Automatic in the Service start-type filter.

Regarding the issue with the PowerShell command provided and the PowerShell_RunCommand KS, the KS is designed to only collect data for a single metric.

Let me know if you have any further questions and/or issues.

Not sure why they give you the option to "Insert Image" on the forums if it doesn't actually insert the image file!! Here is a link for reference: https://microfocuscc-my.sharepoint.com/:i:/g/personal/ethan_itom_solutions/Ebwb8vV6ewJMqC1QRg28p8EBSyAcgjpzNTPJl-gETfu3OA?e=UO578c
