Replace the batch (.bat) scripts in the %PISERVER% folder with PowerShell (.ps1) scripts
This replacement is appropriate for several reasons:
• PowerShell is easier to read and is a more powerful language than the batch language.
• Batch scripts are best used in Windows, whereas PowerShell is cross-platform. This replacement will support OSIsoft's expansion outside of Windows.
• Microsoft is pushing for PowerShell and leaving batch files in the dust. Ideally, PI systems would not rely on legacy technology.
