How to Cheat at Windows Systems Administrators using Command Line Scripts teaches system administrators hundreds of powerful, time-saving tips for automating daily system administration tasks using Windows command line scripts.
With every new version of Windows, Microsoft is trying to ease the administration jobs by adding more and more layers of graphical user interface (GUI) or configuration wizards (dialog boxes). While these ‘wizards’ are interactive and make the administrator’s job easier, they are not always the most convenient and efficient way to accomplish the everyday administration tasks. These wizards are time consuming and, at times, may seem a bit confusing. The purpose of the book is to teach administrators how to use command-line scripts to complete everyday administration jobs, solve recurring network problems and at the same time improve their efficiency.
Provides system administrators with hundreds of tips, tricks, and scripts to complete administration tasks more quickly and efficiently.
No direct competition for a core tool for Windows administrators.
