PowerShell, WMI, and Richard Siddaway--an unbeatable combination.

From the Foreword by Ed Wilson, Microsoft Scripting Guy
Look inside

PowerShell and WMI is an example-driven guide for administrators managing networks of Windows servers and desktops. With 150 practical examples, including ready-to-reuse scripts and techniques, you'll learn the ins and outs of automating WMI via PowerShell v3. You'll find deep coverage of all aspects of Windows administration, including IIS, DNS and Hyper-V.

about the technology

WMI, on its own, is simply a collection of Windows management facilities. Paired with PowerShell, however, WMI becomes a brilliant toolset for automating servers, networks, and remote Windows computers.

about the book

Then you'll explore 150 specific examples — all with ready-to-use scripts — designed to simplify your day-to-day system management. Each tested technique is configured to load as part of a PowerShell module.

A set of handy appendixes includes references for PowerShell and WMI.
