I just wanted to "restart SharePoint" on one of our servers. So I quickly looked up which services need to be restarted to do that. Which lead me to a blog article that describes a script to restart all SharePoint services.
Great. Sadly, the server isn't using the English language. So all I get are "The name of the service is unknown" error messages.
So, are there any identifiers I can use to refer to Windows services which are not translated?
I'm primarily interested in using these with
net start and
net stop (
sc would work fine as well, I assume).
