Microsoft made available a cumulative update package for Microsoft AppFabric 1.1 for Windows Server.

Issues that are fixed or features that are added in this update include:

  • Windows Server AppFabric Cache Administration Tool
  • Cache Clients and Local Cache (Windows Server AppFabric Caching)

This update adds improved PowerShell cmdlets for AppFabric cache management. And, also introduces a new set of AppFabric Server PowerShell cmdlets to make it consistent with other Microsoft server products and keeps the older cmdlets enabled as aliases to make sure that existing scripts continue to function.

After you apply this update, when you open the AppFabric Server PowerShell prompt, PowerShell may prompt you for permissions to run a script if your existing Execution Policy prevents it.

To use the AppFabric PowerShell cmdlets, you have to enable running of signed scripts.

For more information about the update, you can read this Kouwnledge base article KB2671763.

Also, available for download is the new System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2012: PowerShell Cheat Sheet."With VMM 2012 all commands have changed. Think about this… every single command you perform in the SCVMM Admin Console can be performed in PowerShell. There isn't a single thing in the Admin Console that is not available by interactive command or script. In fact, there are many things that can be done only in PowerShell. Further, when scripts (.ps1 files) are saved to the Library they are available to run immediately by right clicking them and selecting 'Run Script.'," said Jonathan.
