But in the modern world, someone is always complaining about something being broken. In the administration world, you have people saying, "Hey, there isn't enough command-line control," so Microsoft developed <a href="http://www.infoworld.com/d/windows/unleashing-power-powershell-520">PowerShell</a>. That causes people on the GUI side to proclaim, "Hey, we don't want to learn command-line stuff!"

I was especially curious about four Active Directory features, so after installing the latest release candidate of Windows Server 2008 R2, I focused immediately on the promised Active Directory enhancements. It's one thing to read about a new feature but quite another to see it for yourself and judge the results.</p> Microsoft Windows Networking Active Directory PowerShell Windows Server Wed, 27 May 2009 10:00:00 +0000 J.

PowerShell is much more than a command-line interface replacement for CMD.exe (though you could limit yourself to just that usage). It's also a scripting language designed for admins to improve administrative control, as well as to add to efficiency and productivity.</p> Microsoft Windows PowerShell Windows 7 Microsoft Windows Wed, 20 May 2009 10:00:00 +0000 J. Peter Bruzzese 76071 at http://www.infoworld.com Unleashing the power of PowerShell http://www.infoworld.com/d/windows/unleashing-power-powershell-520?source=rss_powershell <p>Most assuredly you've heard of PowerShell. But perhaps you haven't had the chance to see it in action. In fact, you might not even quite grasp what it is, exactly. Is it an entire scripting language? A replacement for VBScript? Today, I'm going to crack open PowerShell and reveal what it's all about.</p> <p>Primarily PowerShell is a CLI shell aimed at helping Windows admins better manage, well, just about anything, from Active Directory to Exchange to third-party apps. It's available for free download for Windows XP SP2, Server 2003, and Vista; it's built in to Server 2008.</p> Microsoft Windows PowerShell Microsoft Windows Wed, 21 May 2008 11:00:00 +0000 J.
