Many technologies use PowerShell for administration: Exchange, Active Directory, Windows System Center products, VMware, Citrix, SAN and others. Specific courses cover the PowerShell material required to administer the technology, but leave a gap between what is covered in the course and what administrators need to know to effectively use it. This LearnBlock will help fill that gap.
- Read the PowerShell syntax and identify cmdlets, aliases, parameters, functions, objects, properties and methods.
- Use the PowerShell Console Host and the ISE Host to run commands.
- Run scripts working with: server logs, folders and files, registry keys and values, and Active Directory objects.
This course is designed for anyone who desires to increase their administrative effectiveness using PowerShell. Technology-specific PowerShell is covered in other corresponding courses but this class teaches administrators the skills for applying PowerShell to any technology.
Students must have Windows 2008 administration. They should be familiar with users, groups, services, processes, networking, graphical tools and the command line interface.
This course assumes no prior scripting knowledge. Those with prior scripting experience may benefit as the class contains content which will challenge all skill levels.
