    Advanced Function Parameters 

    Hi Folks ,

    Not a long post but I just wanted to mention that I had emailed the scripting guys about help on creatingย  parameters that get passed to advanced functions because the syntax looks strange to me . Ed Wilson emailed me back right away (Thank you Ed ) and gave me some information that will help me out that I wanted to pass on. I read Ed’s windows Powershell book which was about 1.0 and I was very impressed with it . He also has Powershell Version 2 best practices out now that I may pick up in the near future here.

    To get more information about advanced function parameters you can simple get help in powershell by entering this in the console .Wealth of information here :

    Help about_Functions_Advanced_Parameters

    Also by downloading the powershell SDKย  here.

    The powershell SDK I believe is part of the Windows SDK now.

    Hope this helps ๐Ÿ™‚ .

    Creating a Unix like tail with Get-content 

    Wow I haven’t written a blog in a long time ….

    Hi everyone hope you’re doing well . A very short blog about the Get-Content cmdlet . Get-content has a very nice parameter called -wait . I have been using this for example to find users that lock out there AD accounts frequently and don’t know why they are getting locked out . The netlogon.log captures this info (If your DC is set up for debugging this info ) so it makes it easy to catch these lockouts . What -wait does is monitor the log file or text file so that anything added to it it will display . If you pipe that to a regex statement you can narrow down your search and pinpoint what you’re looking for … So for example if Bob.Roberts is locking out is account and doesn’t know why you can do this :

    gc \\DcName\c$\Windows\debug\netlogon.log -wait | ? {$_ -match "Bob.Roberts"}

    So now any entries that contain Bob.Roberts will be displayed and if not it will just sit there and wait and monitor the log . A great way to just put the powershell window to the side and do other things will waiting for results ๐Ÿ™‚ .

    Hope you like this tip ๐Ÿ™‚
