Default Services in GPO

Basically where do you find services in a GPO? I want to push one out that starts certain services and stops others. It has to be there somewhere I just can't find it. And googling it made my head hurt.

Change the world. Of one person. Today.

If your equation requires either a complex combination of variables to get the desired result OR you can't seem to get the result regardless of the ain't your variables, it's your constant.

Default Re: Services in GPO

This would be something I would do with a login script.
Here's a sample that I made a little while back.

Dim objWMIService, objItem, objService
Dim colListOfServices, strComputer, strService
strComputer = "."

strService = " 'Alerter' "

Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:" _
& "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" _
& strComputer & "\root\cimv2")

Set colListOfServices = objWMIService.ExecQuery _
("Select * from Win32_Service Where Name ="_
& strService & " ")
For Each objService in colListOfServices
If you want to start a service, just replace objService.StopService() with objService.StartService().

The only reason I had to do this is because a service was being sent a stop signal depending on user actions. If you just want them to be started or stopped, look into setting the Service Startup type via VBS.
