3. Server Remote Management > Lesson 4: Windows PowerShell automation

Lesson 4: Windows PowerShell automation

Automation is essential for managing data-center environments because it simplifies the job of performing and scheduling tasks on multiple servers. Windows PowerShell 2.0, which was introduced with Windows Server 2008 R2, included a new feature called background jobs that made it easier to automate server management tasks. Version 3.0 of PowerShell, which is now included in Windows Server 2012, includes additional new features that make PowerShell an even more flexible and powerful platform for automating server management. This lesson provides an overview of some of these PowerShell features, and it also recommends some resources for administrators who are not yet familiar with PowerShell and want to learn more.
