Start SharePoint Central Admin Service in Powershell

The other day, instead of reset (Stop and then Start again) the Business Data Connectivity Service in Services on Server page, I accidentally stop the Central Administration Service (well we are all human...) So I turned to PowerShell again...

List all SharePoint Services on the Server


To Start and Stop a SharePoont service you need

Start-SPServiceInstance [GUID] -Confirm

Stop-SPServiceInstance [GUID] -Confirm

Or You can pipe the Service Name to filter the Type Name and confirm your action.

Get-SPServiceInstance | Where-Object {$_.TypeName –eq ‘Central Administration’} |  Start-SPServiceInstance -Confirm

This should save a day :)
