Rule Check: Service Started (Windows)
The Service Started check for Windows verifies whether or not one or more specified Windows Services are running on the server. Depending on a setting, the check either passes or fails for each specified service that is running, or else it serves as a whiltelist of permitted services.
The name of the Windows service to search for. Can be any valid service name or a comma-delimited list of names. Wildcards are not allowed, although you can use the asterisk character (
Note: The service name needs to be the "Service Name" of the service, not its (typically longer) "Display Name".
Some valid examples are:
|Should be started/running||
This check fails for any of the listed processes that is not running.
|Should not be started/running||
This check fails for any of the listed processes that is running.
|OK to be started/running||
This check fails if any running process is not one of the list listed processes. In this case the check functions as a whitelist.
