Scripting is the best learning investment most Windows administrators can make. Now there’s practical, self-paced training built around your needs as a sysadmin.
Microsoft’s new package assumes no programming experience (though a little VB knowledge will help). Once you’ve walked through the basics -- for example, adding intelligence to your scripts -- you’ll dive right into real tasks.
Start by learning to manipulate folders and filesystems; then use WMI to report on devices, modify registry entries, and switch IP addresses. You’ll create logon scripts, configure networking, automate Active Directory tasks, even script IIS 6 and Exchange 2003.
It’s all hands-on: you learn through exercises, and there are more than 100 scripts on the accompanying CD-ROM. Learn this stuff, and start saving time -- big time. Bill Camarda
