Matt and I really are huge fans of PowerShell providers. After talking about them in general and focusing on the registry provider, you think that we’d stop. But no… there are two more days of this talk of providers – Matt is going to talk about the Active Directory provider today, and I’m going to talk about the IIS provider tomorrow. Yes, providers make our administration tasks much easier by getting us access to things that are typically a little harder to script. This makes it easier for IT pros to write scripts that take advantage of these providers and automate more of their day-to-day operations.
