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.
Enable-PSRemoting -SkipNetworkProfileCheck -Force
Step 2. Make the configuration
Name = 'VMwareHostd'
State = 'Running'
StartupType = 'Automatic'
Step 3 Execute the Powershell and it will create the Folder MyFirstDSC having the MOF
Step 4 Make it So.
