On July 12 I will be co-presenting (with Bob Bobel – Quest’s Senior Product Manager for Active Directory products) at a webcast:
Webcast: Active Directory Management Made Easy with PowerShell
When: Thursday, July 12, 2007 – 10 a.m. PDT/1 p.m. EDT
In this session, we will talk about using Windows PowerShell to manage Active Directory. We’ll cover different approaches ranging from ADSI to AD cmdlets, and demo the features that are backwards-compatible with Windows 2000/2003 and the ones unique to Windows Server 2008 (e.g. Server Core and Read Only Domain Controller).
In the first half of the session, we will also highlight how you can customize and extend provisioning with Quest ActiveRoles Server through PowerShell. In the second half of the session, we’ll demo how you can use PowerGUI to build custom administrative consoles for PowerShell enabled systems, such as Active Directory, IIS, Exchange and Operations Manager.
As you can see from the description besides the general introduction to PowerShell and AD cmdlets you will get exposed to Quest commercial products as well – which can still be pretty handy if you are planning using PowerShell to manage AD in enterprise infrastructure.
You can register here (you might want to pre-register and login in advance because I think those webcasts have limited number of connections).
