Learn how to remotely manage your Windows-based servers and automate day-to-day management and administration tasks with Automating Administration with Windows PowerShell.
This 5-day, instructor-led training course provides you with the fundamental knowledge and skills to use Windows PowerShell command-line features and techniques common to many Microsoft products, but especially Widows Servers. Some of the products that use the skills you’ll learn are Windows Server, Windows Client, Exchange Server, SharePoint Server, SQL Server, System Center, and more.
This PowerShell training, which can be taken online or on-site in Cincinnati, will give you first hand experience in executing and monitoring scripts. You’ll learn to be more efficient through robust session connectivity, work flow capabilities, improved job scheduling, and Windows PowerShell Web Access. Learn PowerShell with greater ease through improved cmdlet discovery and simplified, consistent syntax across all cmdlets. Write Windows PowerShell scripts quicker and more intuitively through the new Integrated Scripting Environment (ISE) that enables script sharing, which connects IT pros to a larger Windows PowerShell user community.
After completing this course, you will be able to:
This module will introduce you to Windows PowerShell and provide an overview of the product’s functionality. The module shows you how to open and configure the shell for use and how to run commands within the shell. The module also introduces the built-in Help system in Windows PowerShell.
Lab : Configuring Windows PowerShell
Lab : Finding and running basic commands
After completing this module, students will be able to:
This module introduces you to the cmdlets commonly used for administration. While you can search for cmdlets each time you need to accomplish a task, it is more efficient to have at least a basic understanding of the cmdlets available for system administration.
Lab : Windows Administration
This module introduces the pipeline feature of Windows PowerShell. Although the pipeline feature is included in several command-line shells such as the command prompt in the Windows operating system, the pipeline feature in Windows PowerShell provides more complex, more flexible, and more capable functionalities compared to other shells. This module provides you with the skills and knowledge that will help you use the shell more effectively and efficiently.
Lab : Using the pipeline
Lab : Filtering objects
Lab : Enumerating objects
Lab : Sending output to a file
This module shows you how Windows PowerShell passes objects from one command to another in the pipeline. The shell provides two techniques that you can use. Knowing how these techniques work, and which one will be used in a given scenario, lets you construct more useful and complex command lines.
Lab : Working with pipeline parameter binding
This module introduces the PSProviders and PSDrives adapters. A PSProvider is basically a Windows PowerShell adapter that makes some form of storage resemble a disk drive. A PSDrive is an actual connection to a form of storage. You can use these two adapters to work with various forms of storage by using the same commands and techniques that you use to manage the file system.
Lab : Using PSProviders and PSDrives
This module introduces you to two parallel technologies: Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) and Common Information Model (CIM). Both these technologies provide local and remote access to a repository of management information including access to robust information available from the operating system, computer hardware, and installed software.
Lab : Working with WMI and CIM
This module provides you the skills and knowledge required to use variables, arrays, and hash tables in Windows PowerShell.
Lab : Working with variables
This module shows you how to package a Windows PowerShell command in a script. Scripts allow you to perform repetitive tasks and more complex tasks than cannot be accomplished in a single command.
Lab : Basic scripting
This module introduces you to more advanced techniques that you can use in scripts. These techniques includes gathering user input, reading input from files, documenting scripts with help information and error handling.
Lab : Accepting data from users
Lab : Implementing functions and modules
This module introduces you to the Windows PowerShell remoting technology that enables you to connect to one or more remote computers and instruct them to run commands on your behalf.
Lab : Using basic remoting
Lab : Using PSSessions
This module provides information about the job features of Windows PowerShell. Jobs are an extension point in Windows PowerShell, and there are many different kinds of jobs. Each kind of job can work slightly differently, and has different capabilities.
Lab : Using background jobs and scheduled jobs
This module covers several advanced Windows PowerShell techniques and features. Many of these techniques and features extend functionality that you have learned about in previous modules. Some of these techniques are new and provide additional capabilities.
Lab : Practicing advanced techniques
Lab : Practicing script development (optional)
Before attending this course, students must have:
This course is intended for IT Professionals already experienced in general Windows Server and Windows Client administration or already experienced in administering and supporting Application servers and services including Exchange, SharePoint, SQL etc It is broadly intended for students who want to use Windows PowerShell to automate administrative tasks from the command line, using any Microsoft or independent software vendor (ISV) product that supports Windows PowerShell manageability.
