Back to some technical posts now – this time playing in the land of scripting and installations.
Time came to upgrade our SQL platform from 2008 R2 to 2012…no prizes for guessing why! Oh, maybe a small prize…a mention!
Time to get back into System Centre, after a little break from posts on this subject! Once your Configuration Manager setup is quite, well big and built up – you may end up playing hide and seek with programs, task sequences… well any object! And trust me, from experience…its infuriating.
I know I’m probably my own worse enemy for it, but I do like using folders to categorise software. The side effect – what happens if you’ve moved it to the wrong folder, forget where you put it etc. Garrhhhhh! Yes…before someone says it…I know you could use search folders, but they arent for everyone.
So it looks like Powershell has become my new thing…it should be everyones thing! The clue is in the name really…POWER! Top Gear style…MORE POWER! (other motoring shows are available…)
Take some of your daily admin tasks… you should find Powershell will be your friend to just get the job done, or in the case of Exchange 2010 – you just have to do some things in Powershell as the console wont let you!
