Background Service is not running

0

I am referring to the script in this thread: https://support.adminarsenal.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/220479147-Remote-deployment-Background-service-not-running?input_string=Background%20Service%20is%20not%20running

Which says:

$secpasswd = ConvertTo-SecureString "DOMAIN_ADMIN_PASSWORD" -AsPlainText -Force
$creds = New-Object System.Management.Automation.PSCredential ("DOMAIN\DOMAIN_ADMIN",$secpasswd)
$remotecomputer = Get-Content env:computername

Invoke-Command -ComputerName SERVER_RUNNING_PDQ_DEPLOY -Credential $creds -ScriptBlock { param($name) & 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Admin Arsenal\PDQ Deploy\PDQDeploy.exe' Deploy -Package 'PDQ_DEPLOY_PACKAGE_NAME' -Target $name } -ArgumentList $remotecomputer

 

However when I run this I get this error:

Restart your background Service. That should fix that issue.

Adding the port caused PDQ to not open. Is there a value I need to stay between?

I remember them saying something about the service port in a video, but I can't find that video to save me

$remotecomputer = Get-Content env:computername

That's going to vomit red text all over a prompt. 

  1.  You can't Get-Content that variable
  2.  it's $env:computername, not env:computername

 

In order for this to work, you have to do a couple of things. 

  1.  You need to make sure the account you are using for the Creds of the Invoke-Command are listed in the Console Users section of preferences
  2. Use TCP not named Pipes
  • Location: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Admin Arsenal\PDQ Deploy
  • Value: ServicePort (DWORD value)
  • It can be any port you want

Finally, the code should look like this:

Invoke-Command -ComputerName <pdq server> -Credential $creds -ScriptBlock{ pdqdeploy.exe Deploy -Package <package name> -Targets $args[0] } -ArgumentList $RemoteComputer

Those backgrounds which you have installed by own services will now be run on the time of the internet connection with the built in services. To need the background built in services for the essay writing help will be assumes like to open the tentative.
