Windows PowerShell is inspired by the best administrative tools and processes from Windows and non-Windows operating systems, and offers a uniquely Windows-centric administration model. For perhaps the first time, Windows PowerShell offers a truly administrator-focused means of automating repetitive or time-consuming administrative tasks, without the need for the same complex programming or system scripting that was required by older technologies. Module 2: Understanding and Using the Formatting System. However, the formatting subsystem offers a great deal of additional power and flexibility that you can use to create exactly the output you need.

This course provides students with the knowledge and skills to utilize Windows PowerShell for administering and automating administration of Windows based servers. This course is intended for IT Professionals already experienced in general Windows Server and Windows Client administration, including Active Directory administration.
No prior experience with any version of Windows PowerShell, or any scripting language, is assumed. It also covers installation and configuration of Windows PowerShell. It familiarizes students with the interactive shell console, and shows how to operate and interpret the built-in help system. Finally, this module describes how the Windows PowerShell pipeline works at a basic level.
Module 2: Understanding and Using the Formatting System This module explains how the PowerShell formatting subsystem works, and shows how to customize the output of cmdlets. It covers the rules that the shell follows for formatting objects by default, and explains how to use the four formatting cmdlets — and their parameters — to customize and control the output displayed on-screen or written to a file, printer, or other output destination.
Module 3: Core Windows PowerShell Cmdlets This module describes several core cmdlets that are used in many different administrative tasks. This module also covers the basics of filtering objects that are in the PowerShell pipeline.
It explains advanced pipeline techniques including pipeline parameter binding and in-pipeline object manipulation. It describes the structure and security of WMI, and how to query WMI information both from local and remote computers. It also explains how to invoke WMI methods to accomplish configuration changes and other tasks, and how to write commands that respond to WMI events triggered by the operating system.
It explains how to retrieve, create, modify, move, and remove objects in the Active Directory. It focuses on PowerShell-centric techniques rather than scripting, and heavily leverages on basic and advanced pipeline techniques covered in previous modules. Module 6: Windows PowerShell Scripts This module introduces basic Windows PowerShell scripts that execute a batch of shell commands in a single operation.
It also explains how to write basic scripts that execute batches of commands, and how to parameterize scripts in order to make them more flexible in a variety of situations. It shows how to create, monitor, and manage local background jobs, and receive results from completed jobs.
It also covers how to configure Windows PowerShell remoting both locally and in a domain environment. This module describes how to create and manage session connections to remote computers, and explain how to use those session connections in one-to-one remote shell instances as well as one-to-many remote command invocation. Finally, it shows how to invoke remote commands as background jobs, and how to manage those jobs and receive results from them. While these techniques do not contribute directly to any particular business goal, they do enable more efficient use of the shell itself, which leads to more efficient administration and automation.
It shows how to use profiles to consistently configure the shell environment, and how to use several techniques for effectively re-using and sharing existing modularized scripts. It also points out best practices and techniques related to script documentation. Module 9: Automating Windows Server R2 Administration This module gives an opportunity to complete several real-world administration tasks related to Windows Server R2. It provides minimal instruction in how to use the cmdlets and techniques required to accomplish the lab portion of this module; instead, it lets students rely on the skills they have learned in the preceding modules of this course.
Module Reviewing and Reusing Windows PowerShell Scripts One of the core skills administrators need is the ability to take a script that someone else has written, review that script to understand what it does, and identify areas of that script that may need to be modified to run in their environment. Those skills are exactly what this module tries to build.
It describes how to create, manage, and use variables. This module also covers advanced topics and techniques related to structured programming within Windows PowerShell. It explains how to trap and handle errors that occur during script execution, and also describes the proper techniques and practices for debugging a script that is not executing as expected. It shows how to modularize scripts into a variety of reusable functions, with the ultimate goal of producing a function that mimics the structure of a shell cmdlet.
