Computer Report III: Eventlog service

Richard Siddaway Richard Siddaway Profile: Richard Siddaway

The batch file has a separate report for event log service status

wmic service where name="EventLog" get Name, SystemName, StartMode, Status

PowerShell translation

Get-WmiObject -Class Win32_Service -Filter "Name=’Eventlog’" | Select Name, SystemName, StartMode, Status


This becomes a very simple function

function get-eventstate{             
param (             
Write-Verbose "Get Service"            
Get-WmiObject -Class Win32_Service -Filter "Name='Eventlog'" -ComputerName $computer |             
Select Name, SystemName, StartMode, Status            


As with all of the functions we’ve seen in this series if you want the output on screen run as


but if you want a file creating

get-eventstate | out-file c:\scripts\eventstate.txt
