Central PowerShell server management2016 R2 - 8.2

Use remote PowerShell to manage servers and automate administrative tasks from a single console. Write or import scripts, validate them, and run them simultaneously on the selected remote servers. For example, you can use SysKit to patch your servers manually rather than automatically, since automatic patches can sometimes break your server environment. You can copy all the update binaries on all the servers, execute update process, and receive a report on where and if the update process was successful.

Remote PowerShell administration

Scripts executed at exact times and continuously2016 R2 - 8.2

Schedule your PowerShell scripts to execute automatically at an exact point in time. Set up scripts to run continuously on specific servers in selected time intervals to, for example, check the status of your SharePoint pages every minute or so.

Within SysKit, we provide tested administration scripts to give you an overview of this feature’s capabilities. Additional scripts can be imported from our repository on SysKit web or written by you. If you are having trouble writing a script a for specific task, contact us and our team will provide you with the requested script. By implementing PowerShell administration, SysKit takes on the role of central PowerShell repository, from which you can perform all your remote PowerShell tasks.

Reporting on PowerShell execution2016 R2 - 8.2

For each executed PowerShell command, SysKit receives data about the execution result on the remote servers. This way you can easily find out if certain scripts have not been properly executed and why. The data SysKit provides from PowerShell execution logs can be exported to Excel or PDF.
