Join PowerShell expert Don Jones as he walks you through the "Just Enough Administration" toolkit, its underlying concepts, and key technologies.

At TechEd 2014, PowerShell inventor Jeffrey Snover introduced a new toolkit of his own design. This toolkit makes it easier for you to give administrators and users "Just Enough Administration" (JEA) for each specific task they need to complete. Using underlying PowerShell Remoting technology, this toolkit finally puts true, granular, delegated administration within reach of everyone. PowerShell expert Don Jones will walk you through the toolkit, its underlying concepts, and key technologies. You'll not only learn how to use it to set up a delegated administration "jump" server, but also how to explain this new set of concepts to your security team back home. You no longer have to live in a world where "administrator" means "keys to the kingdom!"

You will learn:
  • What delegated administration means, and what it's used for
  • How to use the toolkit to define and manage delegated administration endpoints
  • How to manage and monitor this new kind of administration
