Windows Service Recovery Settings with PowerShell

We've often been asked about gathering the recovery settings for Windows services and providing it as part of the audit documentation.

Recovery settings determine what actions a service should take (on Windows 2000 and above) should the service fail.

The actions can include restarting the service or the computer or running a program.



The problem is that the standard PowerShell command Get-Service and the WMI class Win32_Service do not provide this information.


The good news is that we've now updated our server documentation tool with the ability to gather service recovery information which you can then query with PowerShell, view in the web interface or export to PDF.
