Okay, firstly – does anyone use PowerShell? If you did, what did you use before PowerShell? What’s it good for? What do you not use it for? I hear and see a lot about it, but I just can’t find a need to learn a new language when the old (vbScript and Batch files) does everything I need it to. However, I’m lucky to be working at a company that has the best admin power tool for SharePoint (echo for SharePoint) so this may skew my opinion.
If you do use PowerShell to manage SharePoint, this blog post from Zach Rosenfield has some really good script snippets on getting a llist of Sites and Site collections in a Farm.
I’m very interested to hear from people who have used PS scripts – I would like to hear some success stories (writing script X saved me n hours of time). If I see any on the web, I’ll link to them from here. If I see enough, I might put some effort into learning how to use it 🙂
