AD PowerShell Book

Managing Active Directory with Windows PowerShell - the book is out and available at the stores!

Managing Active Directory with Windows PowerShell - the book is out and available at the stores!

I cannot tell you how often do I hear someone asking how to get started managing AD with PowerShell. For a long time I could only refer people to the AD cmdlets user’s guide, forums, or online help. Now there is a game-changing addition to these resources – a book (yes, real, physical book which you can buy in the stores) from Jeffery Hicks – “Managing Active Directory with Windows PowerShell: TFM”.

I was helping Jeff with the book as much as I could (wrote the preface, reviewed, helped with some examples) and must say that this is just a great book for AD administrators regardless of how familiar they are with PowerShell and scripting.

The book is a pretty comprehensive source of ready to use solutions employing all the tools available at today’s admin disposal: native ADSI and WMI support, AD provider from PSCX, AD cmdlets from Quest, GPO cmdlets from SDM Software, PowerGUI and so on. So regardless of whether you prefer native out-of-box no-third-party or best-of-breed-wherever-they-come-from approach – this is a book to have!

See Jeff’s blog with the TOC or get the book from SAPIEN or Amazon.
