Scripting & Automation
Welcome to the BrainWave Scripting Repository (formerly known as the UltraTech Scripting Repository).
This is a collection of core Windows shell scripts that was developed and maintained over the past 20 years in support of various Windows networks, large and small.
Many of these functions can now be supported with Powershell, but these free shell scripts and corresponding console utilities are still viable across multiple versions of Windows Server, with very few caveats.
The individual console utilities can be downloaded here, as well, to be used with the Windows scripting language of your choice.
There is also documentation on how the script repository is setup and organized, if you choose to replicate it for your environment.
The current layout has enabled us to maintain a single set of scripts that can be deployed to many different environments without affecting the environment-specific configurations.
Free BrainWave Utilities
You can download any of the individual utilities, the ZIP archive of the entire script repository, and/or the script repository documentation for setting up your own repository.
