Book News Annotation:

In this 5x8" pocket guide for Windows administrators, developers, and programmers, solutions are provided for automating everyday system-administration tasks with Windows PowerShell. Organized by job-related tasks rather than by Windows features, coverage progresses from managing the PowerShell environment through aliases and functions, role services, managing file systems, printers, and securing the registry. Easy reference features include a detailed table of contents, step-by-step instructions, checklists, fast-fact tables, and cross references. Readers should have basic networking skills and an understanding of Windows. Stanek has 20 years of experience in systems management and advanced programming.
