Microsoft Exchange 2010 Powershell Cookbook
By Mike Pfeiffer

As a long time server and Microsoft Exchange Server administrator, I fully believed and bought into the belief that "command-line" was the old way of doing things and graphical the only way to go. It certainly made my life easier and things easy to grasp and understand. So it was with deep trepidation that I met the news back in 2007 that Microsoft was turning its back on that line of thinking and going into command line interface with something called PowerShell.

At first glance and use, my feelings went from anxiety to despair. I could not make sense of it and worst of all, there was next to zero useful information about it. So much so that I seriously wondered how they were going to make it work in the real world if the only people who knew it were inside Microsoft itself. Ironically, I found myself working at Microsoft last year and I went into full panic mode. I needed to learn Powershell quickly or at least how to use it and be productive and while I paid for a few classes, bought a number of books and even videos, it remained a black art for me to this day. A big reason for it being that PowerShell FOR Exchange was even harder to understand for someone like me, coming from so many years of graphical interface. Still keen to understand it, I can say one does not *need* to know PowerShell to use Exchange 2010.... But it does make your life a whole lot easier!

After completing a migration to Exchange 2010 I needed to transfer knowledge quickly to the administrator and more importantly, spare her my anxiety over understanding PowerShell and embracing how it simplifies administration of Exchange 2010.

This book is great for admins who are just getting into PowerShell AND the admins who want to take automation to the next level. The advantage of this book is that there's a focus on Exchange and what can be done to leverage PowerShell and ultimately make your life easier as an admin. Highly recommended all admins with varying PowerShell/Scripting comfort levels; something for everyone to learn.

"Quick Answers to common problems" - I have to agree.

A number of PowerShell books have graced my shelves, however very few of them allow an Exchange focused professional to learn in an incremental way, focused purely on Exchange. Mike accomplishes this by introducing a concept and then building on it, gradually cranking up the complexity as the book progresses.

Chapter 1 covers PowerShell Concepts - bearing in mind that this book is focused towards an IT Pro and not a developer, Mike does a superb job of explaining PowerShell to a non developer, without going into the complexities of coding methodologies.

Chapter 13 ends the book with coding for Exchange Web Services, a daunting subject which Mike breaks down and makes accessible, with loads of value in between, including managing High Availability, Monitoring, Mailboxes, Recipients, etc, etc.

This is the first Exchange 2010 PowerShell cookbook which I have come across, which lives up to it's promise, is full of real life experience and lives up to it's promise.

Format: Paperback
I would like to firstly mention that this book is obviously esoteric in that it deals with Exchange and Powershell. What it does very well is explain how to use those powershell cmdlets/scriping effectively without the reader having vast amounts of knowledge of Powershell itself. I am no budding Powershell expert, but i found the explanations of this book, clear, concise and to the point. As the book progresses the information becomes more involved and subject matter more extensive, but if you stick with it, you will be pleasantly surprised how much you skill sets start to evolve.
Some books are huge in content and therefore make you think about how you are going to approach certain subjects/or content (fo you dip into chapter 4, 5 etc). With this i would advise anyone to start at the beginning and not to skip, if they can. I have purchased books from PACKT PUBLISHING prior to this and i haven't been let down once in terms of how subject matters are put across to the reader. Hats off to the publisher and of course the Authors!

I begun working with Powershell with Exchange 2007. By that time, the GUI didn't have all the options we have now. Powershell was the only way. I whish a had a book as complete as this one, with real life scripting guidance and so well explained. All you need to learn is here! 5 stars to it!
Writer is an expert in this matter and reviewers are also very skilled people.

This book covers from simple tasks to complex tasks using powershell and is a 'mind opener' for complex scripting. It even explains how to use Web Services, really nice.

Mike Pfeiffer is well known for his contributions to Microsoft Exchange community which has also earned him Microsoft MVP award.

Keeping him in check are the reviewers like Shey Levy, which only means one thing: it is going to be tough for Mike to make a mistake and have it go unnoticed into the book for publication.

Microsoft Exchange 2010 PowerShell Cookbook promises to show you how to automate routine tasks and solve common problems. The book is organized in logical sections walking the reader through key concepts and tasks to manage their Microsoft Exchange 2010 environment with ease.

While the book focuses on on-premise deployment of Microsoft Exchange 2010, the concepts covered should make reader comfortable in managing their Office 365 tenant.

The book dives into Exchange 2010 management tasks by starting on the right foot. While most of Exchange administrators would be familiar with PowerShell in some capacity, authors don't just assume and start off with PowerShell key concepts. This is really helpful to novice readers just as much as experienced PowerShell users who may learn a thing or two they didn't know before.

The book covers every aspect of Exchange 2010 management including recipient management, Database and Server roles management, High availability, Compliance and RBAC.

The book also covers scripting Exchange Web Services which was a pleasant surprise as writing scripts for EWS is difficult only due to lack of understanding on the subject. EWS API and scripting details in this book tries to address just that.

Each section is organized into different tasks reader may want to perform.
