Powershell Tip: where does recovered file get stored in Powershell ?

7:49 pm
Hey Geeks,

Hope you are having a great day. Lets come to one of our interesting section i.e Powershell >_ Tip of the Day.

Ever wondered if you have some unsaved data in Powershell ISE and ISE process get stopped suddenly either it is through system shutdown or any other means.

WHAT HAPPENS TO YOUR UNSAVED DATA??

Once you open ISE you might see that old unsaved data as (untitled*.ps1(Recovered)), But from where did it came.

So the answer is here, its the same way Sticky notes saves the unsaved data.

Powershell stores it in the below path :

$env:USERPROFILE\AppData\Local\Microsoft_Corporation\PowerShell_ISE.exe_StrongName_lw2v3wmtzzpebq33gybmeoxukb04w\3.0.0.0\AutoSaveFiles\



If you already knew this then its great, if not hope you learned something new!

How to get SID of all Domain Users using PowerShell

3:22 pm
Hey All,

Today we are going to cover an interesting topic to fetch SID of all domain users.


What is SID ?

SID (Security Identifier ) is an unique id or value assigned to each and every domain object. Each domain object whether its a Group, User account , Computer , OU is assigned with an unique id in order to get identified by a Domain controller. All these SID's are stored in a Security Database. It looks like S-1-5-32-545 etc.

NOTE :  Domain Controller identifies object with their SID and not with the name. In order to understand this concept, open any box which is in Domain and go to any Folder properties , in Security tab you will observe it will show SID something like S-1-5-32-545 and then it tries to convert it to name.

So Lets Begin

There are several ways to find the list of SSID's , I will be covering the easiest ones.

1. To get the list of all the domain users and their SSID

Get-WmiObject win32_account | Select FullName,Name,SID,Description | ft -autosize | Out-File D:\Data.txt






2. To get SSID for a particular domain

[wmi]"win32_userAccount.Domain='<DomainName>',Name='Username'"


There are many other methods, which can be found here : Click Here

How Invoke-Command works

4:37 pm
To know how Invoke-Command works remotely check the below image :





Apart from this, lets talk more about Invoke-Command.

  • If you run invoke-command locally will this DeSerialization, conversion to XML etc will happen? the answer is NO. Since you are running it locally all this process are not performed.
  • Further a Deserialized object Type i.e. the data fetched remotely through invoke-command contains only few methods as shown in the below image. Hence suppose you are fetching service info using invoke-command remotely and storing the output in a variable, you won’t get methods to Start or Stop the service.


Example :

$Service = Invoke-Command -Cn “Test” -ScriptBlock {get-service bits}

$Service will show the process details, but you can’t perfom $Service.Stop() or $Service.Start() since its the deserialized data.

But you can perform like this :

$Service = Invoke-Command -Cn “Test” -ScriptBlock {get-service bits | Stop-Service}

This will do the task you are looking for.
