Working in a big Enterprise is a whole different animal than small business (which has been my space for a long time). I’m finding myself doing a lot more multi-threading because of the pure scale of things that need to be done and running a single threaded sequence just takes too long. But that doesn’t mean I don’t want to give my users feedback about the progress of my scripts, in fact, the larger the work load the more important feedback becomes. I recently discovered a technique that allows me to do just that–but not before putting my own spin on it.
Time for Part 2 of talking about Network Discovery, the Powershell version. Part 1 can be found here.
My most popular script on Spiceworks, by far, is Network Discovery. I posted it over 3 years ago, and actually wrote it much earlier than that! Time to take another look at it and give it a Powershell make-over. If you’re new to a company and want to find out the basics of what is going on, or a consultant going into new places all the time you’ll want to take a look at this script!
