Today my new article on has been posted on PowerShell Magazine : User Account Control and Admin Approval Mode – The impact on PowerShell.
It goes into detail about User Account Control, which nowadays is enabled by default on every Windows OS, and the impact it has on PowerShell. It shows some considerations and potential issues you could run into when using Windows PowerShell. Here is a short excerpt:
“There are some slight differences to the configuration of Admin Approval Mode on client systems and server systems. The most notable one is that on Windows Server the default administrator account is enabled and is the only account for which Admin Approval Mode is disabled by default. This allows for an easy bypass on Windows Server systems. On Windows Client systems, the administrator account is disabled by default. However, once this administrator account is enabled, Admin Approval Mode is disabled by default on client systems too.”
