Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Microsoft’s once-puny command line has gradually been beefed up into a powerhouse. And, with Microsoft’s forthcoming PowerShell, it’ll be even more imposing. Administrators, power users, and programmers owe it to themselves to master its immense power. The best way to do it: Read John Paul Mueller’s Windows Administration at the Command Line.

Mueller, author of Microsoft Windows XP Power Optimization, is one of the world’s leading experts on squeezing more out of Windows. Here, he covers virtually every command line tool of any significance -- more than 280 in all.

The focus, however, is on solving problems, not just discovering tools. Need to perform faster, more repeatable backups? Search for text more effectively than Windows’ built-in search feature can do it? Discover the services running on your system that Task Manager won’t show? Quickly uncover a user’s full name? Mueller reveals how.

You’ll find dozens of techniques for discovering system status, securing and monitoring Windows computers, automating administration, and much more. There’s a full section on third-party tools -- from command prompt enhancers like XVI32 and ShellExView to productivity enhancers like ToggIt, PromptPal, and WinOne. Mueller even takes you under the hood with command line tools for configuring .NET Framework and ASP.NET.

He concludes with a preview of the enhanced command line utilities that will be introduced with Windows Vista, as well as a full chapter on Microsoft’s widely anticipated new scripting environment, PowerShell (formerly known as Monad).

This book, by the way, is the flagship title in Sybex’s promising new In the Field Results series. (If you’re running Microsoft Exchange, you’ll also want to check out the series’ next title: Jim McBee’s Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 Advanced Administration.) Bill Camarda, from the June 2006 Read Only
