If you are using Windows and maybe XenApp and thinking about using PowerShell then here is a little starter for you. Looking at the cmd-let Get-Command we can lit available commands and drill down using -noun -verb and -module. We will look at XenApp cmd-lets but the same works for any module or set of commands.
Ok so we know to load the snapin:
We can list all available Powershell cmd-lets with
But the list is very long and not so helpful
Get-Command -Module Citrix.Common,Commands
Now that should be a little easier on the eye. But it all goes just too much again when we try :
Get-Command -Module Citrix.XenApp,Commands
So we need to get back to first grade and remember verbs and nouns ( doing words and names 🙂 )
Get-Command -Module Citrix.XenApp,Commands -Verb New Get-Command -Module Citrix.XenApp,Commands -Noun XAApplication
Now tell me your not impressed!!!
