SUMMARY

Author Don Jones brings many years of successful training techniques to this concise, easy-to-follow book. Just set aside one hour a day—lunchtime would be perfect—for a month, and you'll be automating administrative tasks faster than you ever thought possible.

ABOUT THE TECHNOLOGY

Windows has so many control panels, consoles, APIs, and wizards it's really hard to keep track of all the locations and settings you'll need. PowerShell is a godsend: it provides a single, unified administrative command line. It accepts and executes commands immediately. And it has in-built language features that will let you write scripts to control any Windows component, including servers like Exchange, IIS, and Sharepoint.
