This cmdlet supports the common parameters: Verbose, Debug,
ErrorAction, ErrorVariable, WarningAction, WarningVariable,
OutBuffer and OutVariable. For more information, type,
"get-help about_commonparameters".

INPUTS
System.ServiceProcess.ServiceController or System.String
You can pipe a service object or a string that contains a service name to Resume-Service.


OUTPUTS
None or System.ServiceProcess.ServiceController
When you use the PassThru parameter, Resume-Service generates a System.ServiceProcess.ServiceController object
representing the resumed service. Otherwise, this cmdlet does not generate any output.


NOTES


The status of services that have been suspended is "Paused". When services are resumed, their status is "Runnin
g".

Resume-Service can control services only when the current user has permission to do so. If a command does not w
ork correctly, you might not have the required permissions.

To find the service names and display names of the services on your system, type "get-service". The service nam
es appear in the Name column, and the display names appear in the DisplayName column.


-------------------------- EXAMPLE 1 --------------------------

C:\PS>resume-service sens


Description
-----------
This command resumes the System Event Notification service (the service name is represented in the command by "sens
") on the local computer. The command uses the Name parameter to specify the service name of the service, but the c
ommand omits the parameter name because the parameter name is optional.





-------------------------- EXAMPLE 2 --------------------------

C:\PS>get-service | where-object {$_.Status -eq "Paused"} | resume-service


Description
-----------
This command resumes all of the suspended (paused) services on the computer. The first command gets all of the serv
ices on the computer. The pipeline operator (|) passes the results to the Where-Object cmdlet, which selects the se
rvices with a Status property of "Paused". The next pipeline operator sends the results to Resume-Service, which re
sumes the paused services.

In practice, you would use the WhatIf parameter to determine the effect of the command before running it without Wh
atIf.
