    Powershell deployment

    Im sure this has been asked over and over but for the life of me i just cant
    find anything.. maybe i need a thesaurus

    how do i deploy the Windows Management Framework Core?
    I looked, didnt see it on windows update.. couldnt find any docs for it
    either..

    also do i need to remove powershell 1.0? if so how would that be included?

    basically i have a lot of 2003 server that have v1 on them that need to be
    updated to support some of my newer scripts and so i can utilize winrm.

    Thanks

    You have options. PowerShell/WMF is now a patch to the OS. You deploy
    the patch the way you deploy other patches - WSUS, Shavlik, SCCM/SMS,
    etc, etc.

    It's just a patch...

    Yes, but the 2.0 installer should do that for you automagically.

    You could consider using a startup script that first checks to see if
    PowerShell V2 is actually installed and then installs it by just running
    the patch if needed.

    Is that a windows feature? Like would you go into Add/Remove Programs and add that as a windows feature?

    Not really. PowerShell is shipped as an OS Patch. Much like a hot fix or
    other security patch. Once you install that patch, you can use
    PowerShell (and IIRC, not even need to reboot!). You may need to do some
    configuration (create profile files, set execution policy and create
    shortcuts as needed) but PowerShell is indeed installed.
