Disaster Recovery – Get A List Of All Automatic Services Not Started

The following script contacts all the windows servers in the domain and returns a list of stopped services that are set to Automatic to a CSV file.

It also outputs to screen, servers it cannot contact or servers that are skipped as they are in the Excluded List



$ResultsFile = 'c:\temp\results.csv'
$ListOfserversInAD = get-adcomputer -filter {operatingsystem -like "Windows server*" } -properties operatingsystem,Whencreated,servicePrincipalName |sort-object -Property name
$oldverbosepreference = $VerbosePreference
$VerbosePreference = "continue"
$ExcludedList = "Server1",

$results = foreach ($item in $ListOfserversInAD)
if ($ExcludedList -contains $item.name)
    Write-Verbose " $($item.name) in Excluded List"
