powershell scripting for active directory

I’ve been doing more scripting lately, and thought I should document (for myself) some of the stuff I’ve been using. Rather than spit them out here, I put them on the wiki. Here are some snippets of what I use. We use these scripts when building new development environments and servers. Nothing ground-breaking, but still useful as inspiration if anyone else is working around PowerShell.

Create Windows services
Building LDAP container and object strings
Process and create OUs
Create an Active Directory Group
Create an Active Directory User
Open and search XML files
