Find Dependent Services

by May 24, 2011

If you would like to check the implications of stopping  a service, you should have a look at its dependent services:

(Get-Service spooler).DependentServices


Or use Select-Object:

get-service Spooler | Select-Object -expand DependentServices


To stop all dependent services, you can pipe them to Stop-Service:

(Get-Service spooler).DependentServices | Stop-Service -whatif
