MDT -  Microsoft Deployment Toolkit (was known as BDD in a previous life)  now supports PowerShell with a snapin to give a provider and some cmdlets.  See http://blogs.technet.com/mniehaus/archive/2009/07/10/mdt-2010-new-feature-16-powershell-support.aspx Technorati Tags: PowerShell,MDT

Maths Functions

Posted by: | July 16, 2009 | No Comment |

I’ve needed to access the maths functions in .NET for a few things recently and finally decided to create functions for the ones I use all the time.  I’ve started with 3 functions and put them into a module. The good thing about this is that I can easily load them dynamically and any other […]

PowerShell Editing

Posted by: | July 16, 2009 | 5 Comments |

I have been a fan of the PowerGUI editor since it was first in beta but one thing has been consistently annoying.  I don’t like the way is sets itself as the default editor for PowerShell files and blocks changes to this unless you go into the registry and kill the keys it has set. […]

I took delivery of a copy of the Hyper-V Resource Kit today.  Only had chance to flick through it but Chapter 16 jumped out at me – Hyper-V Management using Windows PowerShell – unless my powers of deduction are way off this chapter was written by James O’Neill who also wrote the Hyper-V management library […]

Playing with dates

Posted by: | July 6, 2009 | No Comment |

I happened to notice that Sundays date was 5 July 2009.  Not particular astute you may think but I noticed it because I’d written it as 5/7/9.  English date format puts the day then the month so this may not make sense in other formats. The fact that there was a difference to two between […]

DHCP cmdlets

Posted by: | July 5, 2009 | No Comment |

Documentation on TechNet states that there are cmdlets for managing DHCP servers on Windows 2008 R2.  This appears to be an error as there is no sign of them after installing DHCP. Technorati Tags: Windows 2008 R2

I created a dual boot environment so I could install Windows 2008 R2 and to my pleasant surprise found Hyper-V runs on it.  Need to enable virtualisation in the BIOS but apart from that slight hiccup it installs and works very well.  […]
