Be Ready to Respond to Security Incidents
Merit Professional Development is pleased to present the Automating Administration with Windows PowerShell 4.0 course.
This 5-day instructor-led course thoroughly explains how to remotely manage single or multiple Windows-based servers and automate day-to-day management and administration tasks.
PowerShell is an automation platform and scripting language for Windows and Windows Server that allows you to simplify the management of your systems. Unlike other text-based shells, PowerShell harnesses the power of the .NET Framework, providing rich objects and a massive set of built-in functionality for taking control of your Windows environments.
