Is there a way to restart an ArcGIS Server v10 Map Service from the command line in Windows 7?

I use the AGSSOM utility It is a command linetool that works with Arc10 on both Win7 and WInServer2008. You can start, stop, and view running services from the command line. You can also write a batch script to schedule. Very nice little utlity.

+1, it also comes with source so you can make it do other things. NB: You must be a member of the "agsadmin" group to run the command. – mwalker Feb 1 '11 at 17:19
AGSSOM is tha bomb, baby! – Chad Cooper Mar 10 '11 at 2:16

You can use the AGSSOM utility command line and save it to a .bat (batch file). This will allow you to do things like restart, stop, or stop groups or all web services with a double-click.
