AD and PowerShell at Longhorn Airlift

I’ve been asked to present at the Microsoft Windows Server “Longhorn” RDP Airlift conference in Seattle on May 16 and needless to say was happy to accept the invitation. This is a great event where you can find enterprise customers participating in Microsoft’s “Longhorn” Rapid Deployment Program – i.e. deploying “Longhorn” beta in their production.

In case you are coming, the session will be on Wednesday, May 16 at 9:00am.

The title is: Managing Active Directory with PowerShell and creating custom administrative consoles (300 Level)

I am thinking of the following agenda:

  1. Quick introduction to PowerShell.
  2. AD management in PowerShell using:
    • ADSI, .NET.
    • AD provider.
    • AD cmdlets.
  3. Showing PowerGUI and custom UIs administrators can create for their own AD management tasks.

During the demos I am thinking of showing of a few AD-specific management tasks such as:

  1. Browsing AD, reporting, statistics.
  2. User account-, group-, OU-management.
  3. Provisioning from CSV files, cloning accounts.
  4. A few Longhorn-specific scenarios – such as granular password policies.

This sounds like a pretty exciting session and a good chance to start enterprises (not just geeks like you and me) thinking about PowerShell.

Any comment/suggestions?
