Throughout my work as an IT administrator, I often have to invent solutions my-self.
On this page, I share all of my scripts built to make the life of an IT administrator easier.
Feel free to download, improve, and share my work!
A PowerShell script bundled with a tool from Dell to automatically set a BIOS password, activate TPM, and encrypt the hard drive. Can be run with a GPO or similar to force all computers in a domain to use BitLocker.
A PowerShell script to verify the BitLocker status on all computers in a given OU.
A PowerShell script bundled with a free tool to reset a local password. Run the script to remotely reset the password for a local account on any computer or server. Useful if you want to change the password for the local Administrator account on all your servers.
A PowerShell script to monitor if Nagios is up and running. If not, it will send an e-mail alert. The script logs to a log file at each run which can be monitored in Nagios. In this way, Nagios and the this script will monitor each other.
A PowerShell script to let Nagios monitor an AD replication status.
A PowerShell script to let Nagios monitor the nodes within a Windows Failover Cluster.
A PowerShell script to let Nagios monitor the resources within a Windows Failover Cluster.
A PowerShell script to let Nagios monitor the shared volumes within a Windows Failover Cluster.
One of my favorite PowerShell scripts to let Nagios monitor a file. The script does not only monitors when the file is last edited, but the content in it as well.
PowerShell script to let Nagios check if a specific user is logged on to a given server. Helpful when certian batch processes requires a user to be logged on.
A really powerfull PowerShell script to let Nagios check if Veeam has backed up all or some of the servers in a VMware vSphere environment. Configure Veeam to set a custom attribute on the VMs after each backup, and this script will parse that attribute and make sure a backup is taken. Helpful to find servers you might have forgot to add to your backup job.
A PowerShell script to let Nagios monitor the load of a Citrix Virtual Apps (XenApp) Delivery Agent server.
A PowerShell script to let Nagios monitor the number of sessions (bothactive and disconnected) on a Citrix Virtual Apps (XenApp) Delivery Agent server.
A PowerShell script to “rotate” Citrix Virtual Apps (XenApp) Deliver Agent servers. Useful if you’re using Citrix PVS (Provisioning Services) and have a new image you want to distribute. The script puts selected servers in maintanance mode, starts up new servers and powers off the selected servers.
A PowerShell script that uses the CleanUp.exe and SelfService.exe executlables that comes with the Workspace client, to clean-up the configuration, remove all shortcuts created by the client, and then polls for new and changed shortcuts.
A PowerShell script to do some maintanance on a Windows Server Update Service server. The cleanup is more or less required if you don’t want to fill up the disk with unneeded data.
