I agree with the comment from nkhowland about scripting. The serious Windows Admin VETERAN who doesn't know his way around a batch script isn't either, a serious Windows Admin, or a veteran. Not everything can be accomplished in a GUI, and if I have to do the same thing more than twice, you better bet your boots that I will write a script to do it. I am over worked and I do NOT have time to click through two dozen screens over and over, when I can write a script to do it.
And what VETERAN turns to only Powershell to get scripting done? Powershell has only been a viable option for a couple years, If I am scripting on windows I am probably doing with with a Batch/CMD script, yes sometimes PS or VBS/WSH come into play, but I am not comfortable in PS just yet. We are talking Veterans here, not the little wet behind the ears kids, who wouldn't know a command line if it bit them in the butt!
If you are overworked try scripting your repetitive tasks, maybe you will have more time for the real problems!
