FIMService is the Forefront Identity Manager Service. You can replace this name with the name of the service upon which you’d like to perform any of the above action.

Here’s a zip file which contains the following ps1 script and a csv file.The script will loop through the associated csv file and as per the config, will start, stop and re-start the given service(s). It will also create a Logs folder in the directory from where the script will be executed. All the logs pertaining to the current operation will be stored in this Logs directory.

 



Function LogMessage($strMsg, $lgFlNm)
{
	$strMsg | out-file -Filepath $lgFlNm -append
}

$filePath = [System.IO.Path]::Combine($PSScriptRoot, “config.csv”)
$logFilePath = [System.IO.Path]::Combine($PSScriptRoot, “Logs”)

$logFileName = [System.IO.Path]::Combine($logFilePath, ("ServiceLog_" + [string](get-date -format "yyyyMMdd_hhmmtt") + ".txt"))
$configFile = Import-Csv $filePath

foreach ($servc in $configFile){
	$servc | ForEach-Object {

		try{
			if([String]::IsNullOrWhiteSpace($_.Start) -ne $true){
				LogMessage (“************************************************************”) $logFileName
				LogMessage (“Start:: “ + $_.Start) $logFileName
				LogMessage (start-service $_.Start -passthru *>&1) $logFileName
			}
		}
		catch{
			LogMessage (“Error:: “ + $_.Exception.Message) $logFileName
		}

		try{
			if([String]::IsNullOrWhiteSpace($_.Stop) -ne $true){
				LogMessage (“************************************************************”) $logFileName
				LogMessage (“Stop:: “ + $_.Stop) $logFileName
				LogMessage (stop-service $_.Stop -force -passthru *>&1) $logFileName
			}
		}
		catch{
