Interesting little discovery. Working an a new Windows2008 R2 Server I started working with the test-connection cmdlet. After testing some code I was ready to reduce some lines of code in some production scripts. I quickly found out that test-connection <machine name> –quiet doesn’t work. This would have helped because in current scripts there is an elaborate use of ping and reading the results which with Powershell V2 can be replaced with:
Well I will have to put this in the snippet library and put it into action when the full version 2 is available for XP.
