I previously described the GUI for Managing service failures.
When you configure Service Recovery options, the configuration information is stored in up to three Value Names located at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\<ServiceShortName> where <ServiceShortName> is the service's short name.
The Value Names are:
<b>FailureActions REG_BINARY</b> Configuration information for 1st, 2nd, and subsequent failures.
You can <a href="/article/jsifaq/jsi-tip-6385-how-do-i-configure-service-recovery-on-remote-computers-.aspx">configure a service</a> and use it as a model.
<b>FailureCommand REG_SZ</b> Your program or script, if you configured <b>Run a File</b>.
<b>RebootMessage REG_SZ</b> is the restart message, if you configured <b>Reboot the Computer</b>.
