This section will not be a tutorial in Powershell as a tool in itself, meaning I’m not going to explain what a cmdlet is and how to navigate through your system using Powershell. This place will instead be a place for tutorials in the use of Powershell scripts to help perform daily administrative tasks much faster, and just some tasks you can’t perform any other way.
When it comes to Server 2012 and Exchange, you will find, that Powershell is often the only way to gain some specific info. Say you want to list Mailbox statistics, like mailbox size and usage. The only way to accomplish this, is through Powershell, as there is no such option using GUI.
This is all a step away from previous Desktop and Server versions, where most everything was done using the graphical interface.
