The PowerScripting Podcast

Join hosts Jon Walz and Hal Rottenberg each Thursday at 9:30 EST. Just visit the show Web site to join in the fun.

Up Next: Vaughn & Cody from Pure Storage


As you guys know, we love to have vendors on the show who show strong PowerShell support in their products. Pure Storage is yet another example, so we are having them on to talk about their all flash storage array, and how it can be managed using their open source PowerShell toolkit!

Joining us on Thursday, March 26th will be two fine gentlemen: Vaughn Stewart and Cody Hosterman. Vaughn (@vstewed) is the chief evangelist at Pure, and Cody (@codyhosterman) is a solution architect there, specializing in VMware integration.

You can learn more about what Pure Storage is doing with PowerShell by following the PowerShell category on their blog.

Be sure to join us live if you can, we record at 9:30 PM EDT and stream at live.powerscripting.net

Listen:

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 :)

Question

  • Michael – Superhero: ability to predict all outcomes
  • Charles – Superhero: invincibility

Tonight! Michael and Charles from the Microsoft Enterprise & Cloud CAT Team!


Please join us tonight as we meet up with Michael Greene and Charles Joy from the Microsoft Enterprise & Cloud Group CAT team and authors on the Building Clouds Blog.

What is a CAT team?

CAT teams are responsible for driving customer feedback in to engineering at Microsoft and take on special projects to help accelerate deployment of Microsoft products. The ECG CAT team focuses on Windows Server and System Center. CAT stands for Customer Acceleration Team or Customer Advisory Team. There are multiple CAT teams at Microsoft including Office, Azure, and SQL. In the past we have had other CAT team members including Rob Willis and Jim Britt.

In addition to working with customers on the Windows Server TAP program, Michael and Charles work closely with the PowerShell team on a number of projects. Michael has made several contributions to the DSC Resource Kit and authored the JEA whitepaper. Charles frequently publishes runbook examples for SMA and authored the Tenant Provisioning whitepaper. Recently they co-presented at TechEd Europe on Automated Workload Provisioning on the CPS platform and Leveraging SMA and JEA for Service Provider Operations. They will also be joining us as presenters at PowerShell Summit North America 2015.

Interview

 

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.

Up Next: Garrett Serack from Microsoft Talks about OneGet!


Note: We are recording on WEDNESDAY this week (Dec 9th), not our usual Thursday!

0Please join us tomorrow as we chat with Garrett Serack (@feathercowboy), open source engineer from Microsoft. The main topic of the evening will be a little project called OneGet. From the project site:

What is OneGet?

OneGet is a unified interface to package management systems and aims to make Software Discovery, Installation and Inventory (SDII) work via a common set of cmdlets (and eventually a set of APIs). Regardless of the installation technology underneath, users can use these common cmdlets to install/uninstall packages, add/remove/query package repositories, and query a system for the software installed. Included in this CTP is a prototype implementation of a Chocolatey-compatible package manager that can install existing Chocolatey packages.

Don’t forget to join us for the live video stream and chatroom! We record at Dec 9 @ 9:30 PM EST and broadcast on live.powerscripting.net.

Tomorrow, Thursday Nov 20th at 9:30 PM EST, we will be welcoming Jeffrey Snover, the inventor of Windows PowerShell, and the architect of Windows Server, back to the show!
