This was just announced earlier today, and it’s really exciting so I wanted to make sure readers of this blog news about it. Microsoft just announced that SQL Server 2008 will provide simplified scripting through PowerShell! What great news to wake up to! I’m thrilled about this news because I work with SQL Server a lot in my work and this will likely greatly simplify that work and open up a lot of opportunities for really cool and powerful PowerShell scripts. You can read all about it here.
Well while this has the potential to be something truly great, according to the details that came out of the TechEd IT Forum today it won’t live up to that potential, at least not in the first iteration. My friend Dmitry shares the details here.
