What’s new in AD cmdlets 1.2.2

As Bob blogged yesterday the latest release of Quest’s free AD cmdlets are now available for download. I wanted to take a few minutes to describe what’s actually new and changed in this release.

First and foremost – this is a maintenance release – think about it as a service pack: no new features but lots of bugfixes.

All features were introduced back in 1.2 two months ago and if you missed it have a look at the blog posts I had on these:

The key bugfixes added to 1.2.2 maintenance release are:

  • Fixed the Connection property and other incompatibility issues which affected Kirk’s AD PowerPack.
  • Made Member, MemberOf and AppliesTo properties indexable: so you can do something like $user.MemberOf[1].
  • Added the ability to connect to domain controller, ADAM/ADLDS server or ActiveRoles Server by IP address (e.g. if DNS is not set up properly.)
  • Fixed TsHomeDrive and TsHomeDirectory bug reported by Shay.
  • And finally enhanced the setup so it ensures compatibility with ActiveRoles Server should you have this product deployed.

Overall a good service release and the one we plan to make our minimal system requirement for AD PowerPack starting with PowerGUI 1.9.
