Podcast 297 - The L Women from Alabama

In this episode I talk about how PowerShell will soon be taking over the Office 365 world and how you can save money if you deploy SQL Server in Azure. And while I'm talking about servers in Azure, I talk about a tool you can use to see if your VMs are optimized for your workloads.

Re: Podcast 297 - The L Women from Alabama

I was listening to your podcast and you asked for ideas for PowerShell to demonstrate.  I would recommend development of a PowerShell script that does a daily system check and updates a dashboard. 
- disk space
- list of largest files
- backup completes successfully
-server reboot (?)
- install patches or upgrades
- critical events from the event log
Second, I would recreate for weekly and monthly.  Similar checks to the daily but longer term - successful full backup, successful restore of backup to non-production environment, and basic security checks.
I work on a US government network and Information Assurance is very important.  Automating some basic security checks would be awesome.  They have these things called Security Technical Implementation Guidance (STIG).  I was wondering why someone does not create PowerShell scripts that could be reused instead of everyone manually executing these things.  But, its the Army and it ain't supposed to make sense.  I know you know what I am talking about.  I think the same security might help SharePoint environments not just the ones on US government networks.

Daily Checks

Maybe Todd can hook us up and I can share what we use in those environments.
