PowerShell Commands for Active Directory Security

PowerShell Commands for Active Directory Security | PowerShell | Scoop.it
With the release of UserLock 7 comes PowerShell commands for Active Directory Security. Yes, it is now possible to manage/administer UserLock with PowerShell cmdlets!
IS Decisions's insight:

UserLock 7 will be manageable with PowerShell.

 

So what's the advantage?

 

  • makes repetitive tasks easier and less tedious
  • makes complex tasks less complex by wrapping several commands together
  • facilitates the automation of system admin tasks – reducing the risk of human error
  • all cmdlets respect the PowerShell Standard (settings, help…)
  • remote system management
  • manage UserLock without the console
  • manage UserLock without a web browser

Windows PowerShell Survival Guide

Windows PowerShell Survival Guide | PowerShell | Scoop.it

PowerShell is a vast product, especially when you take into account how it's used in other products such as Lync Server, Exchange, and the Windows Operating System.

Reporting on Windows File Server Shares and NTFS Permissions with PowerShell

Reporting on Windows File Server Shares and NTFS Permissions with PowerShell | PowerShell | Scoop.it

I recently had a requirement to audit the Share and NTFS permissions of a Windows File Server. PowerShell contains the Get-ACL cmdlet which makes retreving the NTFS permissions fairly straightforward, but for the Share permissions it is not so easy, but we can make use of WMI and the Win32_LogicalShareSecuritySetting class.
