Net start – -why?
I am reading the Exchange 2007 Design exam study guide at the moment. The characters are a bit wooden and the plot is obvious but apart from that its not bad.
One bit made me think that the dots weren’t joined up though. In a troubleshooting section the authors talk about stopping and starting a service. When they show how to do it they use net stop and net start.
Hang on a minute. This is Exchange 2007. A pre-requisite is PowerShell 1.
PowerShell has good service support. It gets better in Version 2 but v1 has Stop-Service and Start-Service available through the EMS. Grrr. And they’d been doing a good job talking about PowerShell up to that point.
