Unix and Linux administrators have relied on the command line for years. Windows administrators must now learn to "do more with less" so they can no longer rely on the graphical user interface to manage one server or client at a time. Increasingly, they are turning to command-line tools and batch scripts to perform bulk operations, saving time and lowering the cost of administering Windows (or Windows and Linux in increasingly mixed environments). This book is a response to that trend.
