About this Course

This course teaches students to use Windows PowerShell 3.0 for administering and automating administration of Windows based servers. This course covers Windows PowerShell command-line features and techniques, prerequisite skills supporting many different Microsoft products (Windows Server, Windows Client, Exchange Server, SharePoint Server, SQL Server, System Center), and how to execute and monitor scripts more efficiently through more robust session connectivity, workflow capabilities, improved job scheduling, and Windows PowerShell Web Access. Students will also learn Windows PowerShell with greater ease through improved cmdlet discovery and simplified, consistent syntax across all cmdlets and how to 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.
