After working on windows now i am trying to get the hand on the new test automation framework of windows i.e Powershell to get some usefull information of the system from the CLI based enviroment that we used to get from the command line (DOS ) now that all information we will find out from the windows powershell . We need to have some understanding of WMI ( Windows Management Instrumentation ) which is used to query the information fro windows machine . Here are some usefull info for patching and hardware :
1. What is the processor architecture ?
2. What is the IP of the system ?
3. What is the RAM size ?
4. Patch details that are installed on the system ?
