    @_Emin_ you are right. Thanks for pointing this out. The AD module in Windows Server 2012 nearly doubles the previous coverage. Unfortunately, the module version did not change. I am writing a blog post, See Feb. 19, 2013 where I introduce a function that can check for a specific command.

    This cmdlet is only available on Windows Server 2012.

    The ActiveDirectory module on Windows Server 2012 has 135 cmdlet compared to 76 on Windows 2008 R2.
