I’ve started on a Windows 2008 R2 Powershell 2.0 Pocket Guide. Similar to my Netapp CLI Pocket Guide I will continue to add to the list as soon as I can, keep up to date with my RSS feed at the top right hand corner of the site. I will also tweet and facebook updates. Hope this comes in handy for you.
This page will give you some very usefull Windows 2008 R2 Powershell cmdlets that you can use to make your Windows administration easier. I will continue to add more cmdlets as I come across them. Anything in Italics represents an input variable.
