How to check SSRS service status with Powershell

08 June,2021 by Tom Collins

Question: How can I check for the SQL Server Reporting Service service status with Powershell?    The status checks should be for remote servers


Answer: As long as you have network access & permissions, you can run similar to the below command. This example targets 1 server , but you could easily iterate through a list of servers. 

Get-Service *report* -ComputerName MYSERVER | select MachineName, Status, Name, DisplayName



MachineName Status Name DisplayName
