PowerShell video presentation by Vivek Sharma & Mihai Jalobeanu

by Bharat Suneja

Did you miss Vivek & Mihai’s excellent and very well-received presentation at TechEd in Boston?

No worries if you didn’t make it – the product team is doing a great job putting this and a lot of other content on the Exchange team blog. This one titled “Exchange Management Shell in Action” gives you some great glimpses at what PowerShell can do.

A really neat feature I like about the shell is the ability to pipe output to html and display the same in IE – saves you from endlessly scrolling up and down the shell window to find what you’re looking for!

Try this out if you haven’t already (not sure if this is in the builds of PowerShell available publicly….):
get-help new-mailbox | out-html | out-ie

The comments answer a lot of FAQs as well. Have fun!
