  1. Exchange EDB Recovery Software to recover and Convert EDB to PST file

    If people are trying to convert Exchange mailboxes and export EDB file into PST file format, then I would like to recommend you to use Enstella Exchange EDB to PST Converter Software which can converts the EDB files of the mailbox to PST files and saves it in MS Outlook.

  3. WindowsUpdateProvider module missing since Windows 10 2004

    Since Windows 10 2004 the WindowsUpdateProvider module is missing. Not only that: the CIM Namespace root/Microsoft/Windows/WindowsUpdate is missing entirely. Since there's no documentation on the module or the namespace I don't know how to get it back or if there's an alternative.

  4. Get-ADUser should be able to use UserPrincipalName for the Identity field

    Currently the Get-ADUser cmdlet does not support the usage of User Principal Names to identify user accounts. This is less than optimal when you need to correlate UPNs sourced from one data source, like an Intune-generated CSV, to the respective user accounts. It would be really nice to get that rather basic functionality added.

  9. Add-DnsServerResourceRecord should support the DNS NAPTR record type

    Add-DnsServerResourceRecord has flags like -A, -MX, -PTR, etc. However it doesn't have a -NAPTR flag. Therefore we can't create NAPTR records from PowerShell.

    The NAPTR is a little-known DNS record type however it is an important part of most corporate SIP-based phone systems. Being able to rapidly set up NAPTR records using PowerShell would be great.

    (More important than speed is accuracy: a lot of SIP setup time is spent debugging typos which would be easy to prevented if we could set our NAPTR records with PowerShell scripts.)

    FYI: Remove-DnsServerResourceRecord's --RRType flag doesn't support NAPTR, therefore removing such records is…

  14. Failed to populate environments in settings

    EDIT: Our Win 2016 server was recently patched with KB4569746 (.NET Framework 4.8 cumulative). Could that be the cause?

    Hi, we're getting the following error when trying to connect to Power BI Service using PBI modules MicrosoftPowerBIMgmt:

    PS C:\Users\CONAMZ> Login-PowerBI

    We also tried connecting via Get-Credential and using registered App credentials. The Powershell script has been working for months.

  16. New Parameter on Format-List to exclude null/empty properties

    Format-List (and perhaps Format-Table) should have a parameter to exclude null/empty properties. This would allow finding relevant data more quickly.

  17. Add "Purge" switch to Invoke-GPupdate command

    Sometimes, the cache might be corrupted. Therefore it is not enough to run "Invoke-GPUpdate -Force" in these cases.

    A "Purge" switch which removes everyting within "C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Group Policy\History" folder and runs "Invoke-GPUpdate -Force" implicitly would help for many use cases.

  18. Add "Restore" switch to Invoke-GPUpdate

    Sometimes the "Registry.pol" or "secedit.sdb" files can be corrupted and Invoke-GPUpdate does not work.

    A restore switch, which means removing both files and running "gpupdate /force" afterwards, would help administrators in these cases as it is hard to find these issues when client number goes high.

  19. Add "Silent" or "Hidden" switch to Invoke-GPUpdate

    Existing Invoke-GPUpdate command pops up a console window as it runs gpupdate.exe. However we need to run this command silently. Because it does not allow user interaction, the window does not present anything other than a distraction.

  20. Improve Verbose & Debug switches Invoke-GPUpdate

    Existing Invoke-GPUpdate command has verbose or debug switches but they are only stubs, since the command is a wrapper around GPUpdate.exe.

    This does not allow detailed provisioning and troubleshooting. It would be great to implement the behaviors of these switches.
