Password Generator in powershell

https://gist.github.com/anonymous/530cd44b91e599eed08fd15f70556bc2

I am trying to create a password generator in powershell

The problem is when I run the function the results are not always predictable

For example:
get-randompassword -UppercaseAlphachracters 1 -LowercaseAlphaChracters 1 -SpecialChracters 1 -NumericChracters 5

most of the time it gives me the amount I have requested:
5 numeric chracters
etc etc…

other times it is one less that the specified values.

what am I missing here?

While its awesome that you’re playing around and making your own scripts, you can generate random passwords in PowerShell with a single line.

Add-Type -AssemblyName System.Web
[System.Web.Security.Membership]::GeneratePassword(12,5)

In this line of code, the ‘5’ indicates the Number of non alphanumeric characters while the ‘12’ indicates the password Length.

Have a look t this:

-join ((65..90) + (97..122) | Get-Random -Count 12 | % {[char]$_})

It could make this mutch easier.
