  • exchange shutdown

    Does anyone have a script which will shutdown all the exchange services then use shutdown.exe (in tools) to shutdown the server without waiting ages?

    Check out:

    This script stops a specified service. ALl you need to do is copy and paste the relevant part for each exchange service (depending on your exchange version).

    Running shutdown.exe is a bit cumbersome. Why not get the script to do that as well?

    Or you could write a batch file to have

    net stop <service name>
    net stop <next service name>
    etc...
    shutdown.exe

    Hope this helps

            Why didn't it work? What was the error? MS scripts usually work.
