Is there a powershell to restart the excel services? If yes, what is the syntax to restart the excel services.

Our excel services seem to be not working and only thing I read or heard is to delete existing one and provision a new excel service. I hope I am wrong. – David Mike Jun 29 '11 at 15:47

If the service instance is not online, you can use the following PowerShell syntax: Get-SPServiceInstance | Where-Object {$_.TypeName -match "Excel"} | Start-SPServiceInstance
