Knowing how to script is an essential skill for today?s Windows systems administrator as it can save hours of redundant work. Because it is easier to script with current and emerging technologies such as WMI and ADSI, and management can quantify the savings brought by an administrator with scripting knowledge, it is vital for an administrator to have scripting skills to stay competitive in the field. Practical Windows Administration Scripting uses a series of practical examples to teach scripting technologies and their practical application in Windows System Administration. Starting with an introduction and primer on the various Windows scripting technologies (Windows Script Host, Windows Script Component, HTML Applications (HTA), WMI, ADSI, and VBScript), the book explains exactly what an administrator needs to know about scripting, and which technology is right for which situation. From there the book moves on to discuss scripts, and what types of scripts can be used to make Windows administration easier, and how to use the information from the first part of the book to build scripts customized to particular needs. Information is also included on scripting on the latest Windows technologies such as the Windows Firewall introduced in Windows XP SP 2 and Windows Server 2003 SP 1. In addition, administrators will learn how to use different scripting technologies in combination to create administration tools for different administrative tasks. Complete solutions are also provided that administrators can use with little or no modification to help them in their jobs immediately.
