A sanitized version of a service control script I wrote at a previous company. It was one of the first scripts I wrote, so please forgive some of the egregious sins like Write-Host ;)
# Created by Colby Bouma
# This script shuts down or starts up services in a specific order
#
# Usage: & '.\Service Control.ps1' [-Environment] {PROD, DEV, TEST} [[-Target_Name] <server short name>] [-Start]
# You must always specify an environment that exists in "Service Control.xml"
# The default is to shut down the specified environment.
# The [-Start] parameter will cause it to start up the specified environment.
# The [-Target_Name] parameter may be used to run this script against 1 specified server, using the <Server> name from "Service Control.xml"
# Example of shutting down DEV: & '.\Service Control.ps1' DEV
# Example of starting up PROD: & '.\Service Control.ps1' PROD -Start
# Example of shutting down the second DEV App server: & '.\Service Control.ps1' DEV APP2
# Example of mixing parameter order: & '.\Service Control.ps1' -Start -Target_Name WEB3 -Environment PROD
