Windows Server Automation with PowerShell Cookbook - Fourth Edition

By: Thomas Lee

Overview of this book

With a foreword from PowerShell creator Jeffrey Snover, this heavily updated edition is designed to help you learn how to use PowerShell 7.1 effectively and manage the core roles, features, and services of Windows Server in an enterprise setting. All scripts are compatible with both Window Server 2022 and 2019. This latest edition equips you with over 100 recipes you'll need in day-to-day work, covering a wide range of fundamental and more advanced use cases. We look at how to install and configure PowerShell 7.1, along with useful new features and optimizations, and how the PowerShell compatibility solution bridges the gap to older versions of PowerShell. Topics include using PowerShell to manage networking and DHCP in Windows Server, objects in Active Directory, Hyper-V, and Azure. Debugging is crucial, so the book shows you how to use some powerful tools to diagnose and resolve issues with Windows Server.

Getting ready

You run this recipe on HV1, which uses the PSDirect VM you created in the Creating a Hyper-V VM recipe. This recipe also makes use of a DHCP server running on DC1. In Chapter 7, Managing Networking in the Enterprise, you set the DHCP service up in the Installing DHCP recipe. Then, you configured the DHCP server in the Configuring DHCP scopes and options recipe.

This chapter uses the PSDirect VM you created earlier. When you build this machine using the normal setup routine, Windows assigns a random machine name, which you saw in a previous recipe (Using PowerShell Direct). In this recipe, you also change the name of the host inside to Wolf.
