In This Episode

Tonight on the PowerScripting Podcast, we talk to Joe Levy from Microsoft about Azure Automation

Interview

 

Chatroom Highlights

<Vern_Anderson> ## Does Azure automation just expose SMA or is it it’s own thing

<aleksandar_> ## do users find powershell workflows complex and limiting?

<aleksandar_> ## do people prefer to use portal UI to interact with runbooks or to work in ISE and automate everything?

<aleksandar_> ## what are the main pain points for authoring runbooks?

<aleksandar_> ## what are the main scenarios you can tackle with SMA and AA?

<aleksandar_> ## are there any plans to enable pure PowerShell scripts and not just workflows?

<aleksandar_> ## can we run DSC in SMA and AA? are there any differences compared to running DSC from PowerShell hosts?

<aleksandar_> ## can he talk a little bit about the actual SMA/AA architecture? (or I missed that)

<migreene> ## he had a great demo at TechEd Europe “Get-ThisPartyStarted” where he turned on a disco ball from Azure

<aleksandar_> ## can we expect some graphical authoring UI in Azure Automation like we have in Orchestrator?

<migreene> ## cross plat (http://channel9.msdn.com/Shows/Azure-Friday/Azure-Automation-104-managing-Linux-and-creating-Modules-with-Joe-Levy)

<aleksandar_> ## can we perform all actions available in portal just by using cmdlets in ISE?

<migreene> ## the disco ball demo is worth asking about if you have time.  Joe is a genius…

<Vern_Anderson> ## What language is he primarily coding in?

<aleksandar_> ## joe, remind me to give you a converter :)

From the Chat room

<Doug> ## When will PowerShell be open sourced?

<gpduck> ## is powershellget open source (or going to be if not?)

<gpduck> ## will powershellget eventually support a system-wide list of sources (so enterprise defaults can be provided globally)?

<sepeck> ## will oneget be integrated or leveraged through SCCM or other System Center tools?

<Dave_Wyatt> ## Are there any OSS licensing concerns in OneGet?  (eg, is it kosher to have a GPL licensed provider loaded with the Apache licensed OneGet core?)

<gpduck> ## powershellget appears to only save the list of package sources in a per-user profile directory

<Sandrock> ## does oneget leverage powershell remoting in order to manage installs on remote systems?

<Dave_Wyatt> ## Are there any plans to make these configurations policy-friendly?  When they’re in XML files, it’s awkward to enforce a list of trusted sources in an enterprise.

<sepeck> Guest74842: we’re trying to revive JPavlecks old ##SCOM channel here on freenode.  I am going back to SCOM after a two year brak.

<halr9000> ## with a couple of hash marks

<justpaul> ##can powershell modules have dependencies and can powershellget resolve dependencies (like… err… CPAN)?

<pscookiemonster> ## I know OneGet (as of the first community meeting) had no specific ties to WMF 5, will PowerShellGet be available for down level systems?  Or is it already?

<Jaykul> ## Talk about all the new parameters on New-ModuleManifest

<justpaul> ##what happens if the API key for a module is compromised?

<Stuwee> #### What about a portal for end users to access the jodules?

<Stuwee> #### I want a protal where end users can install their own sofrtware from one-get

<Stuwee> #### the portal should only show what apps the end user has access to based upon ACL’s

<Stuwee> #### it may have been answered, How can I define a users to use the internal gallery not from the internet?

<Stuwee> #### to specify what software a user may have accesss to.

<Stuwee> #### user A get package A and user B get only package B

<Stuwee> ## cidr notation, I’m drawing a blank on what that is

<halr9000> ## what about the lower addresses? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_assigned_/8_IPv4_address_blocks

<Stuwee> ## and this natting is in the US?

<Jayku1> ## Can anyone point to anyone that’s actually doing this? It sounds as complex as rolling out IPV6 :-p

<Stuwee> ## CPE device, what is that?

<Schlauge> ### we’re using it???… but this means that it’s enabled past my router?!?

<Stuwee> ## How can I figure out if my CPE is using v6?

<Schlauge> ### so you’re given IPv6 IPs from the service provider???

<Schlauge> ### how is your internal router passing that information???

<Schlauge> ### but if you’re old printer doesn’t support IPv6… then it will only accept IPv4 packets

<justpaul> ##does Ed run a firewall at the perimeter? if so, which one?

<Schlauge> ### yeah… how is Ed’s home network setup

<Schlauge> ### so you’re devices are connected directly to a switch connected directly to CPE
