PowerShell DSC – Writing Configurations

In my previous articles (DSC on Linux & Building a DSC Pull Server), I discussed about installing and configuring DSC on Linux machines, and after that I talked about creating your very first DSC Pull Server, which grants you the capability of serving configuration documents and resources to both Windows and Linux machines. In this blog post I will be talking about writing configuration files and about the methods that you could leverage the code you wrote in order to write once and use it on multiple machines.

PowerShell DSC – Building a Pull Server on WMF 5

I wanted to write this post back in December when WMF 5.0 got released but I decided to put it off because a week after release, Microsoft removed the packages from the Download Center because of a nasty bug that reset the PSModulePath settings to default (blog post). So after a two months wait, Microsoft re-released the WMF 5 packages that contain the PSModulePath fix which you can get from here. If you installed WMF 5 before it got pulled, you will have to uninstall KB3094174, KB3094175, and KB3094176 and then install the new ones that just got published.
