Desired State configuration

Desired State configuration.




A simple scenario what felt me to understand it, A lots need to cover and learn, but thought sharing it will be worth for the beginner like me. I am just in love with DSC.  Making sense Ahha :)

Execution happen in three steps, Make the configuration, Call it and Make it so (pointer to MOF)

 - Install PowerShell Version 4.0 and enable PowerShell Remoting.

A common problem on laptops is that the initial PowerShell Remoting configuration will fail because the system is connected to a public network.








Step 1.

Enable-PSRemoting -SkipNetworkProfileCheck -Force

Step 2. Make the configuration
#=====================================

Configuration MyFirstDSC
{


    Node 'Anirban-PC'
    {
        Service VM
        {
            Name = 'VMwareHostd'
            State = 'Running'
            StartupType = 'Automatic'
         

        }
    }
}

MyFirstDSC

#=================================================
Step 3 Execute the Powershell and it will create the Folder MyFirstDSC having the MOF


Step 4 Make it So.
