Operations Manager 2007 was one of the first products from Microsoft to ship with PowerShell capabilities out of the box. The Operations Manager Command Shell, which is an optional component of the UI installation, includes a snap-in containing 80+ OpsMgr specific cmdlets and a navigational provider which lets users traverse through the OM instance space like a directory.
We're looking for feedback from all OpsMgr 2007 (RTM, SP1 and R2) users on if and how you use PowerShell (both in general and specifically the Operations Manager Command Shell). If you don't use it then we'd like to hear that too. To that end we've posted a quick 10 question survey on our new Connect site (
The survey is entirely anonymous and all you need to access the survey is a valid Live ID. Your feedback is greatly appreciated and will shape our future plans for PowerShell functionality in OpsMgr!
