In this session we'll show you a number of single line PowerShell commands that you can use to replace systems administration tasks that you still perform using the GUI because you've been doing it that way since the days of Windows NT.

    get-netipconfiguraiton

    doesn't seem to provide subnetmask contrary to the statement in the video and what is shown.

    you have to do something crazy like (Get-NetIPConfiguration).ipv4address.prefixlength

    Its odd behaviors as this that make me stay with cmd as much as I like to move to ps.
