The PowerShell cmdlets for Service Manager has gone Beta 1. I would like to thank Jim Truher for joining the project and putting in a lot of effort in this release!

Release notes:
The snapin has been converted to a PowerShell version 2 module, so registration is not needed. To install extract the zip archive into the
C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\modules directory

and then run:

PS> Import-Module SMLets

This module now contains the following:

PS> get-command -module smlets |sort commandtype | ft commandtype,name -au

I often get questions from customers with complex environments regarding how ConfigMgr could be implemented there. Often their Active Directory consist of multiple domains and in some cases even multiple forests. The answers for these questions are in the product documentation but isn’t always easy to find. I am happy to see that Carol Bailey an senior technical writer for Configuration Manager at Microsoft has compiled these question and answers in an FAQ that can be found here.
