Manage Windows services

This version is out of date. For current versions, see Puppet Enterprise support lifecycle.

You can use Puppet to manage Windows services, specifically, to start, stop, enable, disable, list, query, and configure services. This way, you can ensure that certain services are always running or are disabled as necessary.

You write Puppet code to manage services in the manifest. When you apply the manifest, the changes you make to the service are applied.

Note: In addition to using manifests to apply configuration changes, you can query system state using the puppet resource command, which emits code as well as applying changes.
