AD provider help

Posted by: | January 9, 2012 | No Comment |

The AD examples in recent posts have shown the *-Item cmdlets used against the AD provider. If you would like more information on how these cmdlets (and the *-ItemProperty cmdlets) work in the AD provider – use Get-Help inside the provider.

For example

Import-Module ActiveDirectory

cd AD:

cd dc=manticore,dc=org       (substitute your domain here)

Get-Help New-Item –Full

 

The help file supplies lots of useful information including some good examples
