10 must-have Windows server tools

PowerShell

Microsoft's Server products have evolved to the point that you can perform almost any administrative action from the command line by using PowerShell. Most of the newer Microsoft Server products include management tools that are actually built on top of PowerShell. This means that any management tasks that can be performed through the GUI can also be performed from the command line or performed through a PowerShell Script. You can download PowerShell 2.0 from Microsoft.
