Learn intermediate PowerShell scripting techniques to automate Windows network administration.
- [Scott] Do you ever feel like you're taking the long way around a task that should be easier or maybe just waiting too long for an administrative task to complete so that you can get your prompt back and move on with your day? I can't think of the last time I heard a network admin say that they find it relaxing to create a thousand users one at a time. Scripting languages, like PowerShell, are designed to give back the control of your administrative workflow. In this course, we're going to take a look at the building blocks of PowerShell scripts.
We'll look at functions, conditional tests, loops, and more. Then we'll explore how to apply them to administer an entire network of workstations and servers using remoting and automation.
