The core release of Windows PowerShell, currently available as Release Candidate 1, has 129 cmdlets.

Exchange Server 2007 due for release in the fourth quarter of 2006 has about 350 cmdlets specific to its needs.

The Exchange team has given lots of useful introductory information about PowerShell in Exchange 2007 in two webcasts.

In the first webcast Brad Clark covered The Improved Exchange System Manager for Exchange “12”.

In the second Vivek Sharma described Exchange Server 2007 Management Shell and Scripting.

You will need a Microsoft Passport account or Live ID to register to view or download the recorded webcasts.

Note: The webcasts refer to PowerShell by its old code name "Monad".
