In Part 1 of this series on how to use the Windows command line tools and PowerShell to speed up management of basic security-related tasks in Windows Server 2012 instead of clicking through the graphical interface, we took a detailed look at non-graphical methods for configuring and managing Windows Certification Authorities (CAs), including Certutil and AD CS PowerShell cmdlets. In Part 2, we began our discussion on how to configure and manage the Windows Firewall with Advanced Security via Netsh and Powershell cmdlets, covering the netsh advfirewall command and how to enable or disable the WFAS with PowerShell. In this article, Part 3, we continue with how to perform additional configuration and management tasks for WFAS with PowerShell.
