The Service Restart action starts or stops a service on a network device.
Configure the following:
Important: In order to monitor the service on another machine, the Service Restart monitor has to be configured with the correct user name and password and a user account that belongs to the administrators group on the remote machine. If a domain account is used, then the expected user name is domain\user. If the device is on a workgroup, there are two possible user names: workgroup name\user or machine name\user. No user name and password is needed for local services (services on the machine where WhatsUp Gold is running).
Tip: To check the status of an action, or to cancel an action, in the WhatsUp Gold console go to Tools > Running Actions.
