PowerShell Experts Write Authoritative Guide to Remote Management

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - March 8, 2010) -, the premier educational and community site for Windows PowerShell users, today announced the availability of the "Administrator's Guide to Windows PowerShell Remoting." Written by PowerShell MVPs Dr. Tobias Weltner and Aleksandar Nikolic along with Richard Giles, this free guide is the authoritative source for enabling and executing remote management using Windows PowerShell. 

Remoting is a new feature in Windows PowerShell v2.0 that enables administrators to run PowerShell commands and scripts on remote computers from a central "console" computer. One of the many benefits of PowerShell remoting is the ability to make changes to many computers at once.

"Remoting is one of the most anticipated new features in Windows PowerShell 2.0. It turns Windows PowerShell into an industrial strength management platform by enabling users to run Windows PowerShell commands on remote machines throughout the enterprise," said Dr. Weltner, creator of Idera's PowerShell Plus™. "However, setting up PowerShell remoting can be a daunting task. This guide helps users understand the concepts of remoting and provides essential and practical advice on setup, deployment and security."
