Windows Scripting Bible is the one scripting book that should be on every administrator's bookshelf. It is a book that can be referenced time and again. The book is designed to be the most through guide to Windows scripting and PowerShell on the market. Inside you'll find 800 pages packed with useful information, tips and advice. Over 300 sample scripts and an extensive collection of library functions. Windows scripting is changing the face of system and network administration forever by providing everyday users and administrators the ability to automate repetitive tasks, complete activities while away from the computer, manage remote resources, and perform many other time-saving activities. Scripting accomplishes this by allowing admins to create tools to automate tasks that would otherwise be handled manually, such as creating user accounts, searching files and retrieving data, or examining system information. By eliminating manual processes, productivity increases making admins and developers more effective and efficient. Best of all, scripts are easy to create and allow programmers and administrators to rapidly develop prototypes of applications, procedures and utilities, and then enhance these prototypes to provide exactly what they need. This ease of use provides the flexibility to create the kinds of tools needed without a lot of fuss. No other book on the market covers VBScript, JScript and Powershell while providing practical, useful scripts. Topics covered in the book include: Managing the PowerShell Environment Working with WMI and PowerShell Input, Output and Error Handling in PowerShell Working with Files and the Registry in PowerShell Event Logging and Process Monitoring with PowerShell Creating Scripts and Scripting Files VBScript and JScript Scripting Basics Managing Drives and Printers with VBScript and JScript Working with the Windows Registry and Event Logs in VBScript and JScript Scheduling One-time and Recurring Tasks Using Startup/Shutdown and Logon/Logoff Scripts Using Schema to Master ADSI Managing Local and Domain Resources with ADSI Maintaining Shared Directories, Printer Queues and Print Jobs
