  1. Windows PowerShell Desired State Configuration Missing Key Information

    Great article on DSC for PS5. However, while the article details how to setup a http PULL server and how to get info from a DSC REPORT server, it never mentions how to setup a REPORT server. You can setup clients to send report data to the pull server, but attempting to retrieve info for a node (as per the article) gives a 404 resource not found error. The article doesn't mention how to get PSDSCReportServer.svc going.

    Frequency: Desired State Configuration (DSC)
    Regression: Assume that you've had several machines in production for a long period of time, these machines may possibly have invalid configurations within them (for example perhaps you have switched text editors which require a change to the PATH environment variable) a robust configuration will attempt to perform cleanup of known invalid configurations prior to implementing its desired states.

    Such a DSC script would look similar to the below:

        Environment EnvVar_PATH_Notepad2
    
    {
