A quick task on the Lync server where I needed to list running services.  Indeed I could do this in the services panel using services.msc but this time I wanted to play in powershell.

By typing the following I could list all running services that pertains to Lync

Get-CsWindowsService | Where-Object {$_.Status -eq "Running"}
