Windows PowerShell Scripting through Group Policy

By: Specops Software  09-12-2011

Take Windows PowerShell scripting to your network

With Specops Command, we take PowerShell scripting to every desktop and server in your network.  

How to deploy a PowerShell script

You can also get an overview of all the current script assignments you have in effect, including relevant information such as if it succeeded or failed and when the script last was executed.

Set target of your PowerShell script

Once the actual script is created or imported, it is time to select where you would like the script to be deployed and executed. You do this through an advanced, but simple, user interface. 

A big advantage with the targeting functionality is that it is executed on the local machine, thus providing real time evaluation if the script, and cmdlets, should be deployed and executed -  or not.

Schedule script and get real time reports

After your target is set you decide if you want to schedule the script execution and if so, when and how often you would like the script to execute.

The final step is that you would like to see a report on how the script actually performed. You can do this and much more with Specops Reporting which comes with the product.

Expert impressions

Jeffrey Snover, Windows Management Partner Architect, Microsoft:

".. when I finally understood what they were doing, the top of my head exploded."

TechNet Scripting Guys, Microsoft:

"We realize that true PowerShell diehards might already be disappointed by this gift guide. Why? Because the only thing we really want is the ability to use PowerShell for logon scripts, but there’s no way that the Scripting Guys can give us that. Is there?”

"No, we’re sorry, there isn’t. The truth is, the Scripting Guys can’t give you the ability to use PowerShell for logon scripts But that’s OK, because the good folks at Specops Software can."
