Hey there all,
I am looking to create something that will make remote rebooting faster when I am running installs and updates on some of our boxes.
I have a series of computers that I am routinely servicing. Knowing Windows, there is a lot of restarting involved. I was wondering if I could create a PowerShell script to do the command needed for rebooting(shutdown -i for the Command Line) as quickly and with as little babysitting as possible. All of these computers have 9 character Device IDs, where the last 3 are the only ones that change.
So I’m looking for a script of CMDLet That would have a popup to ask for the last 3 characters, and then reboot the remote computer, maybe saving the task for the session so I could reboot the previous computer even quicker.
It seems like PowerShell should be able to do this, but I haven’t done that much with it, so I’m not positive.
