Some people still consider PowerShell as something that you need to employ only for scripting and automation scenarios, but, when it comes to Microsoft Technology stack, PowerShell evolved into the preferable way of configuring and managing your systems irrespectively of availability of corresponding graphical user interface (GUI). In fact, PowerShell is your primary tool for day to day administration and even some one-off tasks are no longer an excluded use case for PowerShell.

Today, PowerShell is not only an easier way to do some one-off changes or configuration tasks, sometimes it is the only way you can do them. There are a lot of situations when there is no parity in what you can do in GUI and PowerShell, and if in the early days of PowerShell, you sometimes could have a problem of not being able to do something available in GUI with PowerShell, nowadays we have rather the opposite situation – GUI often miss some basic things which available to you only in PowerShell.

Local Administrator Password Solution - Logo

Microsoft is offering the Local Administrator Password Solution (LAPS) that provides a solution to the issue of using a common local account with an identical password on every computer in a domain. LAPS resolves this issue by setting a different, random password for the common local administrator account on every computer in the domain. Domain administrators using the solution can determine which users, such as helpdesk administrators, are authorized to read passwords.

LAPS allows you to manage local administrator account passwords on domain-joined computers so that passwords are unique on each managed computer, randomly generated, and centrally stored in Active Directory infrastructure.
