Scripting languages have always been a part of the Administrator’s toolkit. Unfortunately, most OSITAs (Old School IT Admins) were averse to learning or even leveraging scripting in their duties. Come to this session to lose your fear (BY PARTICIPATING) and see how easy this scripting language is and demonstrate the most common tasks in the life of a SharePoint Administrator.

Microsoft’s Performance Monitor application makes a wealth of information about the components on the servers. In order to properly diagnose and troubleshoot SharePoint performance problems, SharePoint Admin often depends on a performance monitor (perfmon) log during problem period. Choosing or picking different sets of Performance Counters for SharePoint Servers are sometime cucumbersome and time comsuming. Also few client do not allow to log-in to Production Servers directly. Using Powershell we can achive all the possible scenario and can make re-usable script.
In the live demo will try to show how to make best use of PS and other free tool to make readable report from Perf Mon Counters.
PowerShell is a powerful scripting environment and language for developers and administrators. SharePoint 2010 has built in PowerShell administration commandlets, but you can use this powerful scripting language with any version of SharePoint. Using PowerShell, Talbott will demonstrate how you can build and deploy SharePoint sites for development, testing, proof of concepts, and production. Using an agile methodology, you will learn how to leverage PowerShell scripts for your planning and development process.
In this session, I discuss and demonstrate how you can use SharePoint 2010 Web Templates and PowerShell scripts to give your team-based SharePoint development process a much needed productivity boost. Using these techniques, you enable your team to quickly test and review their custom components against your complete SharePoint solution while simultaneously eliminating inconsistencies often created by manual configurations.
