Glad to see further development of WAC and I'm a fan of the concept. However, I would like to see Microsoft investment more resources into the product to speed up the cadence, replace functionality that still requires MMC and sort out the numerous bugs. My experience with 2103 was not great and it felt like a beta product at best.
Appreciate the review of 2110 and will give it another look
Great article, and I would imagine more relevant than ever with the recent change to Point and Print thanks to Print Nightmare.
My own company has been using traditional print serversqueues and mapping via script, which obviously is no longer working well, if at all, and we're investigating transitioning to a GPO model.
We have roughly 300 locations, and personnel travel between locations to work, so user based printing policy really wouldn't work well. Our AD structure does not currently have every location in it's own OU since all the locations require the same access or restrictions, or have until this point. Is there any way to be able to include some sort of logic to say "If the PC is here (each location is identified in the PC name/id) then install these printers"?
I can change -body to -BodyAsHtml "" -Attachments "C:logo.jpg" and it sends an inline logo and I tried -Body $EmailBody -BodyAsHtml "" -Attachments "C:logo.jpg" and it sends but that errors on the -body $EmailBody still??
Thanks Mike I found I can add a logo but not with the body part of code. Currently receiving an error while testing. Send-MailMessage -To email@example.com -From $MailSender -SmtpServer $SMTPServer -Subject $Subject -Body $EmailBody

WOW! Great article - thanks 🙂 It was the clearest and most well-explained guide I found, for setting up the remoting and creds configurations when trying to connect in a home Win10 environment. Its such a convoluted process for something seemingly so simple.
