  • About Microsoft

    Microsoft has had an impact on, and indeed defined the computing world like no other company. The development tools, operating systems and applications produced by Microsoft have achieved near-ubiquity in the desktop computer market. The original mission set by Microsoft's founder was to have "a computer on every desk and in every home, running Microsoft software". About 90% of computer users worldwide run Microsoft products, hence this objective has largely been met. For operating systems, Web client statistics suggest that Microsoft Windows has about a 92% share, Apple Mac OS 6% and Linux, 1%.

Course duration

  • 3 Days

Course Outline

In this Advanced Automated Administration with Windows PowerShell training class, learn how to automate and streamline day to day management and administration tasks and functions in your Windows Server Infrastructure.

This three-day course is a follow on course from the MOC10961 Automating Administration with Windows PowerShell course. It is built on Windows Server 2012 R2 and Windows 8.1 and while it is specifically focused on Windows PowerShell v4.0, is also relevant in v2.0 and v3.0 Windows PowerShell environments.

Expand and build upon the knowledge already acquired in course 10961B and focus on building more scalable and usable Windows PowerShell scripts for use in your organization by building your own Windows PowerShell tools. Learn about areas such as the creation of advanced functions, script modules, advanced parameters attributes and controller scripts. Also learn how to make your scripts more robust by learning about handling script errors and the analysis and debugging Windows PowerShell scripts. The course will also cover the use of Windows PowerShell cmdlets with .NET Framework as well as teaching how to configure your Windows Servers using Desired State Configuration and providing an understanding of Windows PowerShell workflow.

The detailed hands on labs and in depth content and learning will help remove manual tasks that you may currently have to perform as an Administrator, allowing you to make your own Windows PowerShell tools for automated, repeated, accurate management and provisioning of your Windows Server infrastructure.

This course is intended for IT Professionals already experienced in general Windows Server and Windows Client administration or already experienced in administering and supporting Application servers and services including applications such as Exchange, SharePoint, and SQL. System, Infrastructure and Application Administrators working in a Windows or Windows hybrid environment will all find this course relevant to their day to day jobs and future career and skills development.
