I keep reading everywhere that PowerShell is the way of the future. When it was first released I did a whole bunch of virtual labs, but since then I still haven't used it in a production environment. I know the day will come when I'm dealing with OS's where it's already installed, so I want to be ready.
I want to know:
- Do you use it?
- What has your 'bootstrapping' process been for using PowerShell?
- What kind of system administration tasks have you scripted with it?
- I'm an SQL Server database administrator. What are some cool things to do with it?
It seems that everyone agrees that Microsoft is pushing this hard, but no one is actually using it yet. I want to hear from system administrators out there that are using it to do every day tasks and share some code samples.
