    Course Outline

    Module 1: Getting started with Windows PowerShell

    This module will introduce you to Windows PowerShell and provide an overview of the product's functionality. The module shows you how to open and configure the shell for use and how to run commands within the shell. The module also introduces the built-in Help system in Windows PowerShell.

    • Overview and background of Windows PowerShell
    • Understanding command syntax
    • Finding commands

    After completing this module, students will be able to:

    • Open and configure Windows PowerShell.
    • Find and run Windows PowerShell commands.
    • Run commands by using the correct command and parameter syntax.
    Module 2: Cmdlets for administration

    This module introduces you to the cmdlets commonly used for administration. While you can search for cmdlets each time you need to accomplish a task, it is more efficient to have at least a basic understanding of the cmdlets available for system administration.

    • Active Directory administration cmdlets
    • Network configuration cmdlets
    • Other server administration cmdlets

    After completing this module, students will be able to:

    • Identify and use cmdlets for Active Directory administration.
    • Identify and use cmdlets for network configuration.
    • Identify and use cmdlets for other server administration tasks.
    Module 3: Working with the Windows PowerShell pipeline

    This module introduces the pipeline feature of Windows PowerShell. Although the pipeline feature is included in several command-line shells such as the command prompt in the Windows operating system, the pipeline feature in Windows PowerShell provides more complex, more flexible, and more capable functionalities compared to other shells. This module provides you with the skills and knowledge that will help you use the shell more effectively and efficiently.

    • Understanding the pipeline
    • Selecting, sorting, and measuring objects
    • Filtering objects out of the pipeline
    • Enumerating objects in the pipeline
    • Sending pipeline data as output

    After completing this module, students will be able to:

    • Describe the purpose of the Windows PowerShell pipeline.
    • Select, sort, and measure objects in the pipeline.
    • Filter objects out of the pipeline.
    • Enumerate objects in the pipeline.
    • Send output consisting of pipeline data.
    Module 4: Understanding how the pipeline works

    This module shows you how Windows PowerShell passes objects from one command to another in the pipeline. The shell provides two techniques that you can use. Knowing how these techniques work, and which one will be used in a given scenario, lets you construct more useful and complex command lines.

    • Passing the pipeline data
    • Advanced considerations for pipeline data

    After completing this module, students will be able to:

    • Pass data by using the ByValue technique.
    • Describe the advanced techniques for passing pipeline data.
    Module 5: Using PSProviders and PSDrives

    This module introduces the PSProviders and PSDrives adapters. A PSProvider is basically a Windows PowerShell adapter that makes some form of storage resemble a disk drive. A PSDrive is an actual connection to a form of storage. You can use these two adapters to work with various forms of storage by using the same commands and techniques that you use to manage the file system.

    • Using PSProviders
    • Using PSDrives

    After completing this module, students will be able to:

    • Use PSProviders.
    • Use PSDrives.
    Module 6: Querying system information by using WMI and CIM

    This module introduces you to two parallel technologies: Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) and Common Information Model (CIM). Both these technologies provide local and remote access to a repository of management information including access to robust information available from the operating system, computer hardware, and installed software.

    • Understanding WMI and CIM
    • Querying data by using WMI and CIM
    • Making changes with WMI/CIM

    After completing this module, students will be able to:

    • Explain the differences between Common Information Model (CIM) and Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI).
