PowerShell – Manage printers

At work a colleague of mine was looking to modify printer permissions on a Server 2008 R2 terminal server using PowerShell. And to be honest, it was more difficult to do than I had expected.

So naturally, I started looking if someone had already created a script for this same purpose and eventually I found this great script created by Vadims Podans:
PrinterUtils.ps1 / Functions for advanced printer management

By leveraging this script, permissions were easily modified by adding the following lines:
$name = “Printername”
Get-Printer “localhost” $name | Add-PrinterPermission “corp\Domain Users” 0 “print”
Get-Printer “localhost” $name | Remove-PrinterPermission “everyone”
Get-Printer “localhost” $name

My modified script can be found here: http://bjornhouben-web.sharepoint.com/Lists/Scripts/DispForm.aspx?ID=22

Microsoft – Microsoft Management Summit 2013 (MMS) videos available on Channel 9

As most people working with Microsoft products, I was not able to attend the Microsoft Management Summit 2013 unfortunately.

These sessions have been recorded though and are available now at Channel 9 and a great overview of sessions can be found here. This means you can watch them wherever and whenever it is convenient for you.

You can also use this great PowerShell script created by Stefan Stranger to download the MMS 2013 videos.

Enjoy.

Summary of EMC Information Storage and Management storage (EMC E20-001)

Some time ago I took the EMC E20-001 Information Storage and Management (ISM) exam. As a preparation I used the available book and summarized it.

Even though there are newer updated versions of ISM, I think the summary will still be useful for those who quickly want to get more aquinted with information and storage basics.

You can find the summary here. I hope you enjoy it.

Manage bookmarks / favourites website links

Everyone has their favourite web sites they use. These are used for different purposes and some are used more frequently than others.

To organize and share my own favourites / bookmarks, I’ve created a sharepoint list:
http://bjornhouben-web.sharepoint.com/Lists/Links that I will be updating continuously. If you’re unfamiliar with how to filter a sharepoint list, please check my previous post.

Other options to manage your own (personal) favourite web site links include:

  • Using the built-in synchronisation with browsers like Firefox or Google Chome.
  • Create and use a personalized start page like by example Netvibes and Protopage. These also provide options to include other resources like by example RSS feeds, weather predictions, etc. I am currently using iGoogle, but that will cease to function Q4 2013 unfortunately.

During the creation of my own list I came across kadaza.com and kadaza.nl, which also contains a great collection of categorized web sites. You can choose the main category on the left hand side after which you can further drill down by choosing subcategories on the right side.

I hope it is useful to you and should you have some great sites I’ve missed, please mention them in the comments section.
