Run the PowerShell Module as Windows Service¶
As PowerShell Scripts / Modules can not be installed directly as Windows Service, we will require a little assistance here.
In order to make this work, you will require the Icinga Windows Service which can be downloaded directly from the GitHub Repository.
Install the Service¶
At first you will require the Service Binary from the Icinga Windows Service GitHub Repository and copy the binary locally to your system. A recommended path would be your Program Files / Program Files (x86) directory.
Any other custom location is fully supported, has to be however accessible from the Windows Service Environment.
Once you have found a location, the PowerShell Module will assist you with setting up the service itself. In this documentation we will assume the path you have chosen to copy the binary to is
and the binary name is
Now lets install the service with the help of the PowerShell Module:
Install-IcingaFrameworkService -Path 'C:\Program Files\Icinga-Framework-Service\icinga-service.exe'
You can validate if the service has been installed properly by using the Get Service Cmdlet:
Each enabled background daemon component is afterwards being started and executed.
