The service status probe checks the current state of a windows service. It returns the service status enumeration as Value in numeric form, so typically rule evaluation will be done against StringValue.
The service status probe can operate against a remote server provided Panel Service is given appropriate permissions.
One easy way to do this is with the Microsoft utility subinacl (Microsoft).
Server – Optionally specify which server to connect to
Service – Name of service. Must be a system name, e.g. FIMSynchronizationService. View service properties in Windows Services MMC to determine the correct service name.
Fail Rule – Default rule is to fail if the service in any state other than running.
StringValue != "Running"
