PowerShell 3.0, Part 3: Providers, Items, Remote Scripting

with expert Doug Ware

One of the main goals of PowerShell is to make it easy for system administrators and not developers to write scripts to make them more productive. To that end PowerShell has a number of features that are designed to make things easy to understand for system administrators. In this course we’ll take a look at some of that functionality how PowerShell provides an item called providers which will let you treat things like the certificate store and the registry as if it was a drive using paths and treat items just like you would treat files. Then we are going to move on to the bread and butter of PowerShell which is administration. So we’ll look at how you can sign your scripts to make them safe in your environment, then we’ll look at how you can setup remote scripting and use jobs in order to administer thousands of machines from the comfort of your own desktop.
