Is there a unique command ( common to all Linux Distros, Solaris, Windows ) to know whether a service is installed and running on my system or not??
Frankly speaking this was the question asked by my lead.
Can anyone help me out??
As far as Linux Distros and Solaris are concerned, Solaris is Unix based so there may be lots of commands in common, but I'll be surprised if some Linux command runs on windows without any intermediate translater software !

Thanks for your reply.
I don't want something like to run my linux/solaris commands on windows.
I just need a unified command over all Operating Systems to know my service status.
Ofcourse I too was dazzled by that question !!
