Make it a SharePoint Shell

Sorry about the brevity of this post; but, it has been a looooong week.  Next week we’ll discuss how Beaver’s Oil, a fictitious oil company, creates a backup of a host named site collection and restores it.  The week after that we’ll cover creating a host named site collection and setting anonymous access in place.

Once again, sorry about the shortness. . . . .

Make any powershell session that you’re running on a SharePoint Server, a SharePoint management Shell. Make sure you open the PowerShell window as an administrator.


Just run:

add-pssnapin microsoft.SharePoint.powershell


or if you want to be a true SharePoint PowerShell bad-ass , like my friend JT, type:

asnp *SharePoint*
