For all you PowerShell readers I've started my blog series on using the PowerShell Tools for the PI System.
There are 2 blog posts up right now, more in the pipeline...
Connections to the PI System
PI Server archive management shortcomings
Thank you for doing this. I think it's a great idea to get more people interested in the PowerShell Tools for the PI System. There is an incredible amount of things that you can do with PowerShell and with the Tools in general. Just having these example scripts can serve as a building block for so many other PI System Administration tasks that we can simplify. The beauty is that once these scripts are written, there's no need to reinvent the wheel.
Looking forward to reading more.
I was sceptical at first about PowerShell in general, but wow it has saved me a lot of time in setting up the design for managing PI Systems. You have to explore it to see the benefits. I am hoping these blog posts draw the readers attention to the value of these scripts. Every time I open PI SMT I wonder to myself if I shouldn't just script in PowerShell what I am doing so I don't have to repeat it ever again.
