This use case will demonstrate how to restart any Windows service using BMC Helix Intelligent Automation with the TrueSight Orchestration connector to help manage all of your IT assets.
When a Windows Service down alert comes into BMC Helix Operations Management, the service is restarted automatically using BMC Helix Intelligent Automation.
- In this use case, we are using TrueSight Orchestration (TSO) as the automation tool for Out-of-the-box TSO event orchestration runbook adapters and modules.
- The BMC Helix Intelligent Automation Policy triggers the TSO workflow to remotely restart the Windows service.
- The Windows service gets restarted successfully and the event is closed in BMC Helix Operations Management.
- For this use case, we are restarting the Print Spooler service on a Windows server as an example to demonstrate the flow.
