Chapter 1: Getting started with PowerShellRemarksWindows PowerShell is a shell and scripting component of the Windows ManagementFramework, an automation/configuration management framework from Microsoft built on the .NETFramework. PowerShell is installed by default on all supported versions of Windows client andserver operating systems since Windows 7 / Windows Server 2008 R2. Powershell can beupdated at any time by downloading a later version of the Windows Management Framework(WMF). The "Alpha" version of PowerShell 6 is cross-platform (Windows, Linux, and OS X) andneeds to be downloaded and installed from this release page.Additional resources: MSDN Documentation: ing/powershellscripting TechNet: d742419.aspxAbout pages PowerShell Gallery: https://www.powershellgallery.com/ MSDN Blog: https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/powershell/ Github: https://github.com/powershell Community Site: http://powershell.com/cs/ VersionsVersionIncluded with WindowsNotesRelease Date1.0XP / Server 20082006-11-012.07 / Server 2008 R22009-11-013.08 / Server 20122012-08-014.08.1 / Server 2012 R22013-11-015.010 / Server 2016 Tech Preview2015-12-165.110 Anniversary edition / Server 20162017-01-27ExamplesInstallation or SetupWindowshttps://riptutorial.com/2

PowerShell is included with the Windows Management Framework. Installation and Setup are notrequired on modern versions of Windows.Updates to PowerShell can be accomplished by installing a newer version of the WindowsManagement Framework.Other Platforms"Beta" version of PowerShell 6 can be installed on other platforms. The installation packages areavailable here.For example, PowerShell 6, for Ubuntu 16.04, is published to package repositories for easyinstallation (and updates).To install run the following:# Import the public repository GPG keyscurl https://packages.microsoft.com/keys/microsoft.asc sudo apt-key add # Register the Microsoft Ubuntu repositorycurl /prod.list sudo tee/etc/apt/sources.list.d/microsoft.list# Update apt-getsudo apt-get update# Install PowerShellsudo apt-get install -y powershell# Start PowerShellpowershellAfter registering the Microsoft repository once as superuser, from then on, you just need to usesudo apt-get upgrade powershell to update it. Then just run powershellAllow scripts stored on your machine to run un-signedFor security reasons, PowerShell is set up by default to only allow signed scripts to execute.Executing the following command will allow you to run unsigned scripts (you must run PowerShellas Administrator to do this).Set-ExecutionPolicy RemoteSignedAnother way to run PowerShell scripts is to use Bypass as ExecutionPolicy:powershell.exe -ExecutionPolicy Bypass -File "c:\MyScript.ps1"Or from within your existing PowerShell console or ISE session by running:Set-ExecutionPolicy Bypass Processhttps://riptutorial.com/3

A temporary workaround for execution policy can also be achieved by running the Powershellexecutable and passing any valid policy as -ExecutionPolicy parameter. The policy is in effect onlyduring process' lifetime, so no administrative access to the registry is needed.C:\ powershell -ExecutionPolicy RemoteSignedThere are multiple other policies available, and sites online often encourage you to use SetExecutionPolicy Unrestricted. This policy stays in place until changed, and lowers the systemsecurity stance. This is not advisable. Use of RemoteSigned is recommended because it allowslocally stored and written code, and requires remotely acquired code be signed with a certificatefrom a trusted root.Also, beware that the Execution Policy may be enforced by Group Policy, so that even if the policyis changed to Unrestricted system-wide, Group Policy may revert that setting at its nextenforcement interval (typically 15 minutes). You can see the execution policy set at the variousscopes using Get-ExecutionPolicy -ListTechNet Documentation:Set-ExecutionPolicyabout Execution PoliciesAliases & Similar FunctionsIn PowerShell, there are many ways to achieve the same result. This can be illustrated nicely withthe simple & familiar Hello World example:Using Write-Host:Write-Host "Hello World"Using Write-Output:Write-Output 'Hello world'It's worth noting that although Write-Output & Write-Host both write to the screen there is a subtledifference. Write-Host writes only to stdout (i.e. the console screen), whereas Write-Output writes toboth stdout AND to the output [success] stream allowing for redirection. Redirection (and streamsin general) allow for the output of one command to be directed as input to another includingassignment to a variable. message Write-Output "Hello World" message"Hello World"These similar functions are not aliases, but can produce the same results if one wants to avoid"polluting" the success stream.Write-Outputis aliased to Echo or Writehttps://riptutorial.com/4

Echo 'Hello world'Write 'Hello world'Or, by simply typing 'Hello world'!'Hello world'All of which will result with the expected console outputHello worldAnother example of aliases in PowerShell is the common mapping of both older command promptcommands and BASH commands to PowerShell cmdlets. All of the following produce a directorylisting of the current directory.C:\Windows dirC:\Windows lsC:\Windows Get-ChildItemFinally, you can create your own alias with the Set-Alias cmdlet! As an example let's alisas TestNetConnection, which is essentially the PowerShell equivalent to the command prompt's pingcommand, to "ping".Set-Alias -Name ping -Value Test-NetConnectionNow you can use ping instead of Test-NetConnection! Be aware that if the alias is already in use,you'll overwrite the association.The Alias will be alive, till the session is active. Once you close the session and try to run the aliaswhich you have created in your last session, it will not work. To overcome this issue, you canimport all your aliases from an excel into your session once, before starting your work.The Pipeline - Using Output from a PowerShell cmdletOne of the first questions people have when they begin to use PowerShell for scripting is how tomanipulate the output from a cmdlet to perform another action.The pipeline symbol is used at the end of a cmdlet to take the data it exports and feed it to thenext cmdlet. A simple example is using Select-Object to only show the Name property of a fileshown from Get-ChildItem:Get-ChildItem Select-Object Name#This may be shortened to:gci Select NameMore advanced usage of the pipeline allows us to pipe the output of a cmdlet into a foreach loop:Get-ChildItem ForEach-Object {https://riptutorial.com/5

Copy-Item -Path .FullName -destination C:\NewDirectory\}#This may be shortened to:gci % { Copy .FullName C:\NewDirectory\ }Note that the example above uses the automatic variable. is the short alias of PSItemwhich is an automatic variable which contains the current item in the pipeline.CommentingTo comment on power scripts by prepending the line using the # (hash) symbol# This is a comment in powershellGet-ChildItemYou can also have multi-line comments using # and # at the beginning and end of the commentrespectively. #This is amulti-linecomment# Get-ChildItemCalling .Net Library MethodsStatic .Net library methods can be called from PowerShell by encapsulating the full class name inthird bracket and then calling the method using ::#calling Path.GetFileName()C:\ .exe')explorer.exeStatic methods can be called from the class itself, but calling non-static methods requires aninstance of the .Net class (an object).For example, the AddHours method cannot be called from the System.DateTime class itself. Itrequires an instance of the class :C:\ [System.DateTime]::AddHours(15)Method invocation failed because [System.DateTime] does not contain a method named 'AddHours'.At line:1 char:1 [System.DateTime]::AddHours(15) CategoryInfo: InvalidOperation: (:) [], RuntimeException FullyQualifiedErrorId : MethodNotFoundIn this case, we first create an object, for example :https://riptutorial.com/6

C:\ Object [System.DateTime]::NowThen, we can use methods of that object, even methods which cannot be called directly from theSystem.DateTime class, like the AddHours method :C:\ Object.AddHours(15)Monday 12 September 2016 01:51:19Creating ObjectsThe New-Object cmdlet is used to create an object.# Create a DateTime object and stores the object in variable " var" var New-Object System.DateTime# calling constructor with parameters sr New-Object System.IO.StreamReader -ArgumentList "file path"In many instances, a new object will be created in order to export data or pass it to anothercommandlet. This can be done like so: newObject New-Object -TypeName PSObject -Property @{ComputerName "SERVER1"Role "Interface"Environment "Production"}There are many ways of creating an object. The following method is probably the shortest andfastest way to create a PSCustomObject: newObject [PSCustomObject]@{ComputerName 'SERVER1'Role 'Interface'Environment 'Production'}In case you already have an object, but you only need one or two extra properties, you can simplyadd that property by using Select-Object:Get-ChildItem Select-Object FullName, Name,@{Name 'DateTime'; Expression {Get-Date}},@{Name 'PropertieName'; Expression {'CustomValue'}}All objects can be stored in variables or passed into the pipeline. You could also add these objectsto a collection and then show the results at the end.Collections of objects work well with Export-CSV (and Import-CSV). Each line of the CSV is anobject, each column a property.https://riptutorial.com/7

Format commands convert objects into text stream for display. Avoid using Format-* commandsuntil the final step of any data processing, to maintain the usability of the objects.Read Getting started with PowerShell online: ngstarted-with-powershellhttps://riptutorial.com/8

Chapter 3: AliasesRemarksPowershell naming system has quite strict rules of naming cmdlets (Verb-Noun template; see[topic not yet created] for more information). But it is not really convenient to write Get-ChildItemsevery time you want to list files in directory interactively.Therefore Powershell enables using shortcuts - aliases - instead of cmdlet names.You can write ls, dir or gci instead of Get-ChildItem and get the same result. Alias is equivalent toits cmdlet.Some of the common aliases are:aliascmdlet%, foreachFor-EachObject?, whereWhere-Objectcat, gc, typeGet-Contentcd, chdir, slSet-Locationcls, clearClear-Hostcp, copy, cpiCopy-Itemdir/ls/gciGet-ChildItemecho, at-Widegc, nvoke-Itemmv, moveMove-Itemrm, rmdir, del, erase, rd, riRemove-Itemhttps://riptutorial.com/12

aliascmdletsleepStart-Sleepstart, sapsStart-ProcessIn the table above, you can see how aliases enabled simulating commands known from otherenvironments (cmd, bash), hence increased discoverability.ExamplesGet-AliasTo list all aliases and their functions:Get-AliasTo get all aliases for specific cmdlet:PS C:\ get-alias -Definition ame---dir - Get-ChildItemgci - Get-ChildItemls - ---Source------To find aliases by matching:PS C:\ get-alias -Name me---popd - Pop-Locationproc - Get-Processps - Get-Processpushd - Push-Locationpwd - Get-LocationSet-AliasThis cmdlet allows you to create new alternate names for exiting cmdletsPS C:\ Set-Alias -Name proc -Value Get-ProcessPS C:\ tps://riptutorial.com/WS(K) VM(M)----- ----20444 .19CPU(s)-----7.94Id-620SI ProcessName-- ----------1 ApplicationFrameHost13

Keep in mind that any alias you create will be persisted only in current session. When you startnew session you need to create your aliases again. Powershell Profiles (see [topic not yetcreated]) are great for these purposes.Read Aliases online: seshttps://riptutorial.com/14
