  • More VMWare scripting: Invoke-VmCommand.ps1from Brandon
    • List VMs and processes, execute arbitrary commands.
  • Talk about Switch -regex and Brandon's perfect exampleof a useful custom object
    • Why write a wrapper for this existing utility? (hbainfo)
    • Using Switch -regex to process text
  • Marcus asks (and he blogged about it),
    • "How can I fix formatting on a free-form street address field stored in my AD? Can posh help with an output where ... for example, address is split into multiple lines? Like this:
      "400 crap rd,
      suite 150"
    • Ended up using calculated properties to get the results into a table easily:
      $a | format-table displayname,samaccountname, @{
      Label ="Street Address" ; Expression = {
      $_.streetaddress -replace"`n"," " } }
