Windows Powershell for IT Administrators

Tue, 22 May 2007, 18:30 - 21:20 (Add to calendar) GMT
Microsoft Ltd , Reading, GB
In this session, we'll introduce you to Windows Powershell, what it is and what you can do with it. We’ll take a look at how you can use the shell to perform day-to-day administrative tasks. We'll start with a basic overview of shell concepts, commands, cmdlets and how to construct them. Then we'll move on to build more complex scripts, before rounding up with ways to administer windows using some of the reporting facilities available in the shell.
