My corporate arrangement with my IT department is a funny one. Â They’ve put together the server (Windows 2008 Enterprise x64 under VMWare). Â They apply patches and otherwise maintain the O/S. Â However, I have admin rights and maintain other software that I and my department use. Â I’m an “IT Type” with a fair bit of experience, but in the business unit.
Why they don’t consider Powershell to be part of the operating system is beyond me. Â My request to upgrade has been met with “that’s a Server 2012 feature, but you can do it yourself”. Â Perhaps they’re just lazy
In any case, they have left it to me to upgrade to PS V3, should I so desire. Â Which I do.
So, are there any gotchas or issues with an upgrade to PS V3 on this environment? Â Is there anything I need to know other than launch the installer and click next/ok? Â Is PS V3 fully backwards compatible with PS V2, i.e. it won’t break existing scripts?
If I stuff this up it would be a “career limiting move” lol.
Thanks for the advice!
