How to restart SSRS using Powershell? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi!

    I am trying to restart SSRS using powershell. When I run 'Get-Service'  I can see the service is called "ReportServer$POCDB".

    I am trying to run the following:

    Get-Service "ReportServer$POCDB" | Restart-Service;

    But I get the error:

    Get-Service : Cannot find any service with service name 'ReportServer'.

    Any idea what Im doing wrong?
