In case you’re wondering why PowerShell is worth learning, here for example are problems I quickly solved at work just today using only basic PowerShell:
- List all enabled Active Directory user accounts with no email address configured.
- Given a spreadsheet of 600+ accounts with valid email addresses now listed beside them, update AD user account properties accordingly.
- Given a list of users who have left the organisation, disable their AD accounts and move them to a specific OU (for deletion in the future).
- Search an Organisational Unit full of disabled user accounts for any that were still in a particular group.
These tasks were all trivial in PowerShell! What are you waiting for? Get learning!
