  1. Package Provider / Gallery support in LCM for Resource module repository

    Several Package Providers existed on-prem for several years now. This includes private nuget and chocolatey repositories. With PSGallery coming to on-prem deployments, it makes sense for on-prem DSC or even in the cloud to have the ability pull missing resource modules from one of these repositories instead of a pull server.

    When I have implemented Private PowerShell gallery or any of the other package manager repositories, as an enterprise customer, I would like to keep only one copy of the module(s) that is used by all users and configurations. Today, within LCM we have the ability to download resource modules…

  2. Derive Current Machine State and use for future Deployments via DSC

    Currently looking for a best practice method to derive the current "State" on machine that has not been configured with DSC yet. In other words I have 1 machine I am pleased with and wish to derive it's state fully including policies, ENVs, installed packages etc, so I may replicate it's state to 15 other machines

    BTW, DSC on any node, agnostic of it's OS is mind blowing - thank you!

  3. Feature Req: Exchange data between resources

    Currently, all data needed for a resource to work must be available at MOF compile time. If a resource depends on information which was not available at compile time we have to add logic to our resources to search for this information.
    Example:
    We have a resource which handles a certificate enrollment and another to bind the thumbprint to a web-binding. As we don't know the thumbprint up front, we have to add logic to the web-binding resource to have it search for, e.g. a friendly name or another attribute which was settable by the enrollment resource.

    Feature Req: It…

  4. DSC resources need to expose (comment-based?) help

    Frequency: Always Happens
    Regression: No, this is new to the most recent version

    Problem Description:
    Although a DSC resource is a PowerShell module that exports three specified functions, users don't "see" it that way; they see a resource as a single monolithic unit. But because the resource is an odd sort of sub-module of a root module, the resource can't readily expose help. In other words, I'd like to be able to run Get-DscHelp <resource_name> to see a description…
