Powershell deployment

J

Justin Rich

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.
