Managing GPOs via PowerShell has always been a natural and significant next step after AD management, and it is great to see the ecosystem around PowerShell advancing in closing the gaps. SDM Software guys have updated their free PowerShell snapin which now includes cmdlets to create, change, link, export, import, remove GPOs, as well as manage their security.
This is great, and I like to think I was a bit partial to that, because I was telling Darren about the idea back in March 2007. Of course I am pretty sure I was not the only one, but it’s nice to think you were a part of something great, right? 😉
UPDATE: It turned out that while I was writing this, SDM Software extended the pack from 9 to 12 cmdlets so you can now also get and remove GPO links, as well as work with GPO backups. You guys are quick!
