You’ve been using Windows PowerShell and understand how everything works locally, but you have a network of servers to manage with PowerShell. This course teaches you what you need to know to get started using PowerShell in a networked environment.
Windows PowerShell is a terrific tool, but naturally you need to use it more than just on your local computer. In this course, PowerShell on the Network, you’ll learn how to put PowerShell to work for you in a networked environment. First, you'll discover how PowerShell handles traditional or legacy remoting. Then, you'll explore the modern way PowerShell works in a network environment, and how easy it is to run a command on one or 100 remote servers. Finally, you’ll learn how to get management information from your servers with WMI and the CIM cmdlets. When you’re finished with this course, you'll have the foundational knowledge for remotely managing servers and desktops in your network, and you'll be ready to take on more advanced PowerShell networking topics. Software required: Windows PowerShell 4.0 or later.

Course Overview Hello everyone. Jeff Hicks here again to let you know about my latest PowerShell course from Pluralsight. Now if you've just begun your journey in learning PowerShell, at some point you are going to want to venture up from your desktop and see what else you can do. Now my new course, Putting PowerShell on the Network, is designed to get you quickly up to speed so that you can use PowerShell to remotely manage servers on your network. We'll begin by looking at traditional remoting and then quickly transition to the PowerShell way, which what I call it, which I think you'll find both intriguing and really easy to use. I will show you how to set up an interactive and secure remote session. I'll also show you how to run commands on multiple remote servers at the same time. Now you need to know this so that you can move into the world where you no longer manage one server at a time, but start doing something that I call managing at scale. Along the way, I'll also introduce you to remote systems management using WMI and the CIM cmdlets. Need to know how much disk space remains on 100 servers, well you can discover that and a lot more with commands like get wmi object or get cim instance. And we'll also look at how you can interact with web-based platforms and data sources with commands like invoke web request and new web servers proxy. By the end of the course, you should be able to reach out and confidently explore your world with PowerShell on the Network.
