Alright. Just received a request to disable services for security hardening.
Well, 1 VM = 6 services need to disable.
144 VM = 864 services need to disable.
Next question, why don’t i use group policy?. Well, due to unavoidable circumstance i cannot use group policy. Wow 864 times of configuration is a lot of work. The best way, is write a script to disable the services.
1. Check the service name from services.msc
Example of services:-
|Microsoft iSCSI Initiator|
Network Access Protection
Smart Card Removal Policy
sc config MSiSCSI start= disabled
You can configure startup to be “auto” | “disable” | “demand” | “delayed-auto”
Save to batch file and execute to the entire VMs.
