PowerShell – Online Virtual Lab

Microsoft TechNet has produced an on-line Virtual Lab on PowerShell.

The lab, which lasts up to 2 hours 50 minutes, covers the following topics:

  • PowerShell Variables
  • Branching and Script Blocks
  • Looping, Functions, and Filters
  • WMI Scripting
  • .NET Forms with Windows PowerShell
  • Visual Basic scripting functionality within PowerShell
  • PowerShell and Active Directory Domain Services
  • PowerShell scripting to reset a ADDS user password
  • Remote management using PowerShell

    If you are unfamiliar with PowerShell, or if you want to dig a bit deeper into some of these areas, then head on over. It takes a minute or two for the TechNet Virtual Lab to come up, but once it does, you’re presented with a screen like this:


    This lab is based on PowerShell 1.0 (although everything in the lab should work fine with PowerShell V2.0).
