Book Description

During the decade that PowerShell has been around, a significant and increasing percentage of Windows administrators have discovered that PowerShell allows them to be more productive. They’ve realized that PowerShell enables them to perform administrative tasks across a wide range of technologies from Microsoft and third-party vendors. The time it takes to develop PowerShell scripts is paid back multiple times by automating repetitive tasks and reducing errors with repeatable, reliable processes.

Exploring PowerShell Automation is a selection of chapters that give you an overview of using PowerShell to administer your environment. Richard Siddaway has been involved in the production of all of these chapters either as an author or an editor and has chosen them specifically to represent the breadth of possibilities for administering your systems through PowerShell. The first two chapters provide an overview of PowerShell and PowerShell Remoting. The remaining three chapters give you examples of using PowerShell to administer SQL Server, IIS and Active Directory – three components that you’ll find in practically any Windows environment.
