Windows Server 2019 Essential Training Part 2 - Management and Administration

The course is in 6 sections, so I'll separate them by parts. I do have Windows Server experience, and 2019 is new to me, though the general idea is the same.



💠 Powershell is A) A scripting language, and B) Is an application with a command based shell to run and create your own Powershell scripts and modules (a collection of scripts, modules, and functions).

💠 PowerShellGit is used to download packages from GitHub. Is it the equivalent of 'apt-get'?


💠 You can remote the Domain Controller from Powershell. Consider the permissions, who is logged into the target machine. Other parameters may be needed.

💠 Invoke-Command -ScriptBlock {cmdlets} -ComputerNames("name1", "name2") can be used to run the same command on multiple domain controllers and servers.

💠 Windows Admin Center is a browser-based app for managing clusters, servers, and Windows 10 PCs. Check your SSL certificates!

💠 When installing a role or a feature, you're prompted to install GUI and Powershell tools for management. if you're in the GUI (Server Manager). In PS, you have to spell it out with the parameter -IncludeManagementTools.

💠 RSAT (Remote Server Administration Tools) are downloadable on Microsoft's website. Be mindful of the one you pick - What updates do you have? What version?

💠 Features list in 'Add Roles and Features Wizard' includes 'Server Admin Tools' as 'Remote Server Admin Tools' because Server Manager assumes you're there to manage a role somewhere else.

Wireless Diagnostics on Mac OS; Packet Sniffing on a WLAN

There's a post sitting in my drafts about Wireshark and how to sniff packets out of the air that was going to be about sniffing for authentication packets for Wi-Fi hotspots that aren't broadcasting SSID (Which you shouldn't do apparently!

So when he said "Just open up Wireless Diagnostics and sniff your network (check your width and channel)." It was shocking to me.
