Opalis and windows service restarts - hung in "Stopping" state


  • Hi, I have a policy that restarts a windows service based on certain criteria.  However, the service sometimes gets hung in a "Stopping" state, can Opalis determine the state of that service while it is in a hung "Stopping" status?  What I mean is does Opalis see it as "Paused" or does it consider it a transitional state?

  • Hello,

    with the object "Get Service Status" you get the state of the service. In my example the state  ist "Service stop pending".

    If Policy is in Pipeline Mode you can configure a internal loop if you want to wait this Object until the the service has certain state ("Exit Condition").

  • I did a test and it will just show the status as "Service Running" if it is in the middle of being stopped.
