Query Service Properties

Use the Task Query Service Properties to gather information about all services that run on Agents, including name, state, start mode, recovery options and description. This allows you to compare services plus their settings on multiple Agents.

For example, you can check whether the service Telnet is running on a set of computers and configure a Task Manage Service Parameters to change the "Service State" of this service to "Start Service", based on the Query results.

If you schedule a recurring Job with this Task and view the results of this Job, the Job History tab in the detailed results window will display changes as they occur when comparing the query results with previous query results. Depending on the configuration of the query, this allows you to track changes in installed applications, printer drivers, services, shares, etc.
