Lesson 3: Managing networking using Windows PowerShell

Managing network settings and services is a core task for administrators of Windows Server–based networks. Examples of network configuration tasks include configuring interfaces, IP addresses, default gateways, routes and metrics; configuring ISATAP and Teredo for IPv4/v6 interoperability; and similar tasks. Examples of network service tasks include configuring DHCP scopes, options, and reservations; creating different types of DNS zones; configuring DNS root hints and forwarders; creating resource records; and similar tasks.

In previous versions of Windows Server, such tasks usually had to be performed using a combination of GUI tools and various command-line utilities. But with the significantly increased Windows PowerShell capabilities built into Windows Server 2012, you can now perform most network administration tasks from the Windows PowerShell command line or by running Windows PowerShell scripts. This lesson demonstrates how to identify network components that have Windows PowerShell support and how to perform some common network-administration tasks using Windows PowerShell.
