Practical PowerShell

In addition to all my other writing and speaking gigs, I’m now writing a monthly column for a new eJournal from RealTime Publishers. The column, Practical PowerShell, will be a regular feature in Windows Administration in Realtime. Windows Administration in Realtime The eJournal is a free PDF although I think you have to give up an email address. It is about all things you are interested in as a Windows Administrator. It is a bit longer than a newsletter, but not so long that you can’t read it during your 15 minute lunch break.

The column’s goal is to provide practical PowerShell solutions for typical management tasks. This month I explain how to find those pesky files that are taking up too much space on your file servers using PowerShell. Typically the column will begin with an IT management challenge. I then present a solution and walk through how it works. The column isn’t necessarily intended to teach your PowerShell from the beginning, but you’ll certainly pick up some ideas and you’ll see some key PowerShell concepts in action.

I hope you’ll let me know what you think and share any challenges you’d like see answered.
