Not Puzzled AnyMore

The windows validation tool is going to ask you if you will allow it to have the permission it needs to run so that it can check to see if the appropriate software and hardware is in your computer. This means that it is going to be checking to see if you are running a real version of Microsoft.

Once it is done, you are going to get a validation code and that code is going to have to be placed in the box before you can continue.

At this point you will finally get the PowerShell download link. After you have completed the download process, you are going to have to click through a few settings with the set-up wizard to install PowerShell.

Tough, but worth it

PowerShell is a command shell that can be extended. It is also scripting language that is generally used to administer and manage environments within the server. Examples of these types of servers are Exchange, SharePoint 2010 and Windows Server. PowerShell is a fantastic tool and the best part about it is the extension. It means that the extensions are able to add value to any of the compatible environments. In its simplest terms, it is an extension of the tools you already have. That makes it so you can complete tasks that are repetitive in nature more bearable, you are able to make those complex tasks easier by taking several commands and wrapping them all together and you can automate tasks like deployment. In turn, the risk of human error is reduced tremendously. The scripting language part of PowerShell is great for developers. PowerShell is based on the C# program and most developers have said that PowerShell is easy to use and learn. There are several components in programming that can be easily replaced with the PowerShell program. Some of those include the need for a central administration website, stsadm, PS config and the SharePoint Products Configuration Wizard.

A world of possibilities opening up

In August of 2016 Windows ten-anniversary update was made available. The update had a newer version of the Management framework which put it at version 5.1. also, you can use the get – PSVersion function with your version module in order to determine which version of PowerShell you are working with. Whenever you use the PSVersion – list version you are going to be obtaining an entire history for PowerShell version 5 in order to compare them and see which one is better for you to be using. With the anniversary update, there are some new commands that you are going to be able to use that are going to differ from the ones that were on version 5.0 greatly. Version 5.1 is meant to be easier for you to use so that you do not have to worry about inserting the wrong command. However, since there are new commands, you have to learn what they are In my personal opinion, version 5.1 is going to offer you a cleaner script which is going to make it simpler for you to be able to figure out where you make mistakes in the event that you receive an error code. The new cmdlets are going to make it to where you can not only get information off of the computer about the computer, but you are going to be able to work with time zones which is something that you could not do with the previous version. The cmdlets are going to be the heart of the code that you are writing, so having a cmdlet that does what you are wanting it to do is going to improve your code tremendously.

The narrator accent really grew on me

Daniel breaks his instructions down to their most basic parts and uses plenty of examples to ensure his audience fully understand what is going on, creating a strong foundation of comprehension to build upon. After about 25 minutes of lecture, the narrator accent really grew on me, ceasing to be an obstacle and taking on a quality of making the lectures interesting to listen to.

I get good information

This audiobook is splendid. I inclined such huge numbers of successful things from this book. I get good information, tips and strategies for me to be able to learn and follow in easy steps with this Powershell. I can also recommend this audiobook to all who don't have enough ideas and learning about this topic as it contains basic of information that you needed in the 1st step of Powershell. I was really astounded by perceiving what number of imperative recommendations accumulated in such a good length of 8 hours course. Creator completed a phenomenal activity. I'll most likely prescribe this course to my loved ones. I really appreciate this audiobook. Thanks to Daniel Jones.

Recommended.

So far, the book is a collection of basic examples of things you can do with PowerShell. As this isn't a 3 or 5 day course, it's not going to be a deep dive, but I've learned at least one new thing each section. I'm interested to see the tie-together at the end, but even if it just keeps doing what it's doing, it seems to present some basic framework of PowerShell in a useful way. Section 3 about interpreting "Simple & Effective Strategies" is quite helpful.

Must for serious developers

One tip that you should follow is to use the PSReadLine module. This module is going to provide syntax highlighting so that you can see your commands easier and spot the mistakes that you may have made in your coding. Not to mention, you are also going to have the ability to see how PowerShell is interpreting the code that you put into it. Typically, the syntax is going to be yellow while the parameters are gray. The variables will appear in green text, and the output will be white. In the event that one of your commands continues to fail, check out your code and see if you accidentally left something out, such as a hyphen. In the event that PowerShell takes something and changes it from what it actually is, then your error message is going to appear in red. For example, if you were trying to figure out what version you are using for PowerShell. PowerShell may think that you are using text with this command rather than setting it as a parameter as it should be. This is going to cause the error message to occur Remember in the last chapter how we installed HistoryPX, make sure that you do that again for this module so that you are able to update it when the time comes. If you do not, then you will not be able to update it, and when it becomes outdated, you are going to have to go through the entire process again.

Command line commands

The first thing that you are going to want to do is install historypx. Installing this module is going to be easy due to the fact that GitHub hosts it. Because of this, you are going to be able to use PSGet to download the module.

Note: PSGet is a module that was developed by the PowerShell community so that you can streamline modules that need to be installed. You can get this module from www.psget.net. There are cmdlets in this module that can not only be used for installing modules, but also for updating them.

You also need to ensure that you are applying SnippetPX when you are installing the historypx module. If you do not have either of these modules, you can install them by using the following syntax. Be careful though due to the fact that the modules are going to be installed for every user on PowerShell.

Great Value for Money

Learning PowerShell is an important function for anyone who wishes to be a Network Administrator or for anyone who just wants to be able to use a highly functioning and overall great automation tool. Before we move on, it is necessary to note that e book is based on PowerShell 3 in Windows 8. If you are still running Windows 7, just make sure you have the PowerShell 3 update before attempting any of the examples we are going to show in this book. There are two different ways one can interact outside the box using PowerShell with the Console and Integrated Scripting Environment. Moving forward, we will be using the abbreviation ISE. The ISE has improved tremendously from its prior version, PowerShell 2. It is able to be opened by simply pressing Win + R key combination and the run box will pop up. You will then input PowerShell_ise and press enter. You should see that the ISE has a split view which makes it easy to script quickly while you can still see the result of what you have done in the lower portion of the ISE. That is where the results will be printed and it can also be used as a REPL prompt, which is similar to a command prompt. In this version, there is support for intellisense in the script pane and the interactive console.

Great for advanced programmers

PowerShell, like so many other programming languages, it is object oriented. So, essentially, the features found in PowerShell are going to be object oriented. Some cmdlets will return your results as an object. With everything in PowerShell, you are going to have the capabilities to manipulate the PowerShell objects.

There are properties of the PowerShell objects that will be the method that your object is going to use in order to carry out the command that you want to be conducted. Some users are not going to want to use an object orientation directly, and there is a different way that you can go about using object-oriented features, and that is to use the .NET and WMI objects in the same line when you are writing out your scripts.

The .NET objects are going to be easy since these are all set by default. You are going to have the option of letting PowerShell determine what the class is for .Net. For example, you can type in DIR for your file system, and you will get a set of files as well as directory objects. PowerShell also has access to the com objects. You will find this is useful whenever you are trying to access a legacy application.

Perfect Powershell course.

Great audiobook! It's so difficult to locate a decent online course on powershell or if nothing else a better than average digital podcast, So needed to purchase couple of online courses to learn it all alone. Also, from every one of the courses I possess this one is by all accounts the most important and extremely about the stray pieces of powershell. Highly prescribe it to all...

Explains the structure of PowerShell.

When you use the out- grid view cmdlet you are going to need to use the -pass thru parameter in order to have the option of picking out the objects in the grid that appears on your screen and then returning it to your PowerShell console in order to be processed further. Imagine that you have a number of commands in your command history and you want to select a few of them in order to create a script with them. You can use the get – history command in order to redirect the lines of command into a file that you can open and edit. However, the easiest way to do this is to create a temporary file that will hold your script before you pipe out the history to the out – grid view that is going to allow you to see which commands you want to select. From there you will pipe those commands to your file and open it in your PowerShell program. First things first is to create the temporary file. You do not have to create this file, but it is going to make this process easier. You have the option of setting up a file for the script in your script folder, but you are going to be doing more work than you really want to. Therefore, just create the temporary file so that you can store your path to this file in a variable.

Very detailed explanations.

The book is very thorough so far and I appreciate that the basics are being taught, even though I am already somewhat accustomed to PowerShell, teaching these basics may greatly assist users who are starting the course with less prior knowledge.

Well guided!

The accent was a attracting to start with and the content was excellent and well guided as well. After a very short time, the accent of narrator is much pleasing to listen if you are concentrating deep. Very good course.
