Sample scripts for system administration

The fundamental goal of PowerShell is providing easy administrative control over systems, either interactively or from script. This collection of examples walks through scenarios for administering systems with PowerShell. The examples can be used from scripts or as functions later.

These examples use a mix of cmdlets and external tools. Use of external tools is part of the long-term design intent of PowerShell. Even as the system grows, users continually encounter situations where the available toolsets do not do everything they need. Rather than foster dependency solely on cmdlet implementations, PowerShell support integrating solutions all available tools.
