I really like the PowerShell for Active Directory, that you find in Windows Server 2008 and above. I cut my teeth on PowerShell with Microsoft Exchange Server 2007, and love the ability to script almost everything – even if the script is just a bunch of repeated commands against a list in Excel, that’s copied and pasted.
Yay, it’s time for another technical post!
I manage and am responsible for Active Directory for a number of customers, both public and private sector. Rather than searching my documentation to find the FSMO role holders, it’s easier to log on to a server and run “netdom query fsmo” in a command prompt.
