Now we're going to put to work the things we've learned about the health system. 

• Question 1

We're going to run get-service okay press return and let's go ahead and scroll up. Now we want to pick a service that is currently running okay. And after you find a service that is currently running you're going to want to get the dependent services of the service that you have chosen. 

• Question 2

Lists all the logs that are on the computer go ahead and type that and get-eventlog -list you've already seen this. Now get the 20 most recent entries from the system log. 

• Question 3

The get-command, command gets all the commands on a computer. In this question, we want to get all the commands of all types. 

• Question 4

From the root of your C drive, create a folder, called content. Go ahead and open notepad, create a text file. Add a few lines and save it to your content directory and name it, test.text use the get-content command to get the contents of your text file and display it to the console. 

• Question 5

clear-history from the console pane type the command. Get-history. Displayed are all the commands that you have typed into PowerShell. Go ahead and use the clear-history command and only delete the first scroll up there delete the first and the last command that you've typed in the PowerShell. Now delete all the remaining commands. 

• Question 6

Using the get-alias command, how can you figure out the alias for get-service? 

• Question 7

How would you start and stop the bit service and see the result. 

• Question 8

How would you display the installed version of PowerShell? 

• Question 9

How would you count the number of aliases in the current session. Here's a hint. You may have to count and measure. Use the get-command *measure* to find the correct command. 

Go ahead and check out the answer video at the end of the section to make sure all your answers are correct.

Is there a lab environment where we can try and work through the answers to these questions?
I did also try just going to one of the labs to try it out, but the labs weren’t opening for me.

I was able to get into the labs, just opened up one of the 60min ones. I think it wasn’t letting me open a lab because I had a lesson open. Once I closed the lesson it let me open a lab, then I came back to this lesson so that I could attempt to answer the questions.

Update-Help -Force -Verbose does not work in the lab environment so I can’t the entire help module. I tried running it in PS and PS ISE but it’s not working in either. I also tried saving it to a help folder in the C drive but it gives me the same error near the end of the download. Could you give me some advice on how I can get past this error? Thank you.

Hi profile avatar Brandon Landers

Which of the labs were giving you that issue? Try with the Domain Administration with Windows PowerShell Lab since that seems to work when entering Get-Help and pressing Y to update. Executing with verbose works as well with a lot of Yellow Verbose output and a couple of error not updating a couple of modules but not an issue.

I’m using the Domain Administration with Windows PowerShell Lab. It’s still not getting the help module so I can’t participate in answering the questions.

These sorts of error can be safely ignored. They do not impact PowerShell functionality or use of the help files to complete the lab.

What happens here is that certain modules have no online updateable help or the URL has been removed or server is unavailable. It is a Microsoft issue as I have seen it online on multiple forums.
