    Hey Guys & Gals!

    Alright. I’m creating this discussion after mentioning it to STARK. Powershell is an incredible application. I work with a former Microsoft Employee, and they used it for a lot of things. With that said, let’s create a collection of useful commands that the average Windows SA would use on a consistent basis, and potentially more advanced commands.

    Great idea, as mentioned in a previous post I am a Windows SA, and have been through the 2008 track, but this exam seems to be heavier on the powershell side and Ill need to +1up my skills.

    Awesome. I’m pushing for SA status. Specifically towards Linux, but I feel I should be well rounded, in case a better job offer comes a long. I look forward to picking your brains, novovictus!

    Instead of re-inventing the wheel, here are the already-published list of Windows 2012 PowerShell cmdlets for server roles (see the ToC on the left): https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn249523.aspx Once you determine what it is you’re trying to accomplish, you’l want to learn about loops (eg. foreach-object) and filtering (where-object). That’s explained really well here: http://www.computerperformance.co.uk/powershell/

    Going though Win 7 and 8 Desktop support (local tech school) and Powershell is used extensively. I am new to PS and would like to find a good resource and tutorial. Especially interested in remote management. The technet site is a good resource. thx

    PowerShell 3.0 in a month of lunches is a good way to learn, easy to follow book with useful guides.

    Very good Mike!

    Microsoft Virtual Academy has some online courses that are a good overview.

    Don Jones has some good YouTube video’s also.

    I am familiar with dos commands but powershell commands are new to me.

    I have been tasked with writing a powershell command script that does two things:

    1. Deletes the contents (all subfolders and the contents of the subfolders) under a particular folder
    2. remove a shortcut from the desktop

    if that can not be done with simple commands, maybe the steps need to be broken down:

    1. gets a list of subdirectores under a directory
    2. navigates to each of these directories and deltetes the contents
    3. remove the subdirectories
    4. then remove shortcuts from the desktop.

    So, what is your question? This isn’t a place to post your homework questions. Please give it a try and feel free to open a new thread with any specific questions you may have. BTW, all native cmd (Windows hasn’t had DOS since Windows ME) commands work in PowerShell as well.
