What is meant by Ancillary Service?

200-Service-Check-AncillaryServices.ps1 looks in Run-Install.config for services to check but I don't know what these services might be. Can you tell me?

I have used this script in the past to warn me if either Internet Information Services (IIS) or the FTP service were running on the server, but you can check for any service that you feel shouldn't be installed on a database server. If any of the specified services are found then their presence is logged in the SQLInstallerLog file, but it will not affect the installation process.

That behavior can be changed by modifying the 200-Service-Check-AncillaryServices.ps1 script.
