Description - Automating Windows Administration by Stein Borge
While the Windows Script Host (WSH) is capable of performing a number of common tasks such as file handling and network connections, WSH's great strength is its ability to use COM components. This allows WSH to perform database, E-mail, security, user administration, network, and system administration through objects built into Windows. This book provides practical solutions to common problems as well as detailed discussions of the underlying technology used in the solutions.Stein Borge provides a general introduction to new features in recent versions of WSH, and then covers the file, shell and network operations using built-in WSH objects. Borge also provides chapters on lesser-known but important recent additions to WSH of standard input/output streams and regular expressions, as well as covering registry operations using the built-in Shell objects and WMI objects.Automating Windows Administration is targeted towards administrative and support staff in Microsoft networked environments who desperately want a way to automate common administrative tasks.
The book provides a problem and solution-oriented approach to automating common administrative tasks for all business-oriented versions of Windows from NT to Windows 2003 Server using the Windows Script Host (WSH). WSH is a replacement for Microsoft batch scripts.
