You'll also find deep coverage of all aspects of Windows administration, including IIS, DNS and Hyper-V. About the Technology

WMI, on its own, is simply a collection of Windows management facilities. Paired with PowerShell, however, WMI becomes a brilliant toolset for automating servers, networks, and remote Windows computers. About the Book

PowerShell and WMI is an industrial-strength guide for administrators of Windows networks, servers, and desktops. You'll start with practical overviews of PowerShell and of WMI. Then you'll explore 150 specific examples—all with ready-to-use scripts—designed to simplify your day-to-day system management. Each tested technique is configured to load as part of a PowerShell module.

A set of handy appendixes includes references for PowerShell and WMI. Prior exposure to PowerShell and WMI is helpful but not required.

Purchase of the print book comes with an offer of a free PDF, ePub, and Kindle eBook from Manning. Also available is all code from the book. What's Inside

  • Managing Windows, IIS, and Hyper-V
