• Reblog: READY: Should you care about Windows PowerShell?

    Marco Shaw posted this article on his weblog.

    “I’m going to start blogging on the System Center Central web site.  The site is dedicated to Microsoft’s System Center product line, which covers a wide-range of products. 

    I’m starting a series of blogs posts there to talk about using PowerShell while focusing on its use with System Center products. I’m going to title the series: “READY”, “SET”, “GO”. “Ready” is already posted HERE where I talk about why you should learn PowerShell.

    The “Set” post will probably cover some PowerShell terminology you should really know, and may want to refer back to at any time, and finally the “Go” posts will be a potentially indefinite number of posts where I’m actually going to use PowerShell to try to do something productive to show you how you can use PowerShell.

    The integration these System Center products have with PowerShell also greatly varies, and I plan to discuss this in future posts in the series.  I would expect them to have better integration in the future though.

    Please feel free to leave comments at any time if you want me to cover anything in particular. My next post  in that series should appear in the next 2 weeks...”

    Go and learn PowerShell.

     

    Sorry for not posting lately, but I’ve been pretty busy. Currently learning about MP Authoring and today I finally created my first PowerShell Discovery MP for OpsMgr 2007 R2. Hope to post some lessons learned soon on my weblog. Always wanted to be a developer and creating MP’s from the Authoring Console and editing the XML feels like being a developer ;-)

  • Direct access to the MP Guides and MP Catalog from the Ops Console

    Today I got a question from a customer asking where they could find the MP Guides if they are downloading the MP’s directly from within the Ops Console in OpsMgr 2007 R2. I told them they could better go to the MP Catalog website and download the msi and read the Guide from the extracted msi.

    But there is another faster way using the MP Guides online. But then I thought about an even better way using My Workspace and creating a Webpage View.
