So anyway... besides Scripting webcasts they also have Security webcasts [my passion]
and TechNet Radio now and Channel 9 videos and then there are Technet Chats [don't forget the SBS End user
chat on August 5th]
So what's scripting about anyway?
You are building a script to run a task that might normally in a gui screen take longer.
For example changing the local admin password via script is done like this...
strComputer = "MyComputer"
Set objUser = GetObject("WinNT://" & strComputer & "/Administrator, user")
Obviously change the name of the computer from “MyComptuer” to whatever the name is and change “testpassword”
to whatever you like but copy and paste that to notepad, save as a vbs file and voila, you have a script.
