A small one this time. Whether it is Azure servers, customer servers or workstations ... there can be many reasons why a device can not be running 24/7 and reboots need to happen.
As an example, Azure servers that have been set to turn off after work hours and turn on in the morning. To realize this, you must have set rules or other automation tools to have it shut down and start up again. However, can you trust on it always working? Maybe the server has been online for the last few weeks without you noticing!
The script below checks how long a device has been active for and executes actions depending on the result.
Today I wanted to mix it up a bit more and combine both the informational posts with scripting.
And thus for people who are new to Powershell ... the basics!
Disclaimer. This will not teach you HOW to script and/or most of the scripting language, there are more than enough good quality tutorial video's and reference material on that. This will simply be a small lesson on how Powershell is set up to work and some tips/tricks that might help you create your first working scripts.
After this session you hopefully will be able to see the idea behind the logo shown at the top of this blog post.
Today no script but a small informative post explaining the bare bone basics of SNMP.
Anyone with any knowledge about SNMP will have no use for this information so this really will be more of an introduction into this subject.
So.. What is SNMP?
