We totally understand that a robust Pull server / central management solution is something that is critical to your success with DSC. We have invested quite heavily in Azure Automation DSC (AA DSC) to fill many of these needs. With that said, I would be very interested to understand if the AA DSC solution does not work for you (and other customers) and why? Vote and comment if this is important to you.
Also interesting feedback on our ‘bad ideas’. Thanks!
Your votes on this and other features helps us in our feature prioritization.
Thank you for the suggestion. Given the number of requests, we cannot field all recommendations, so for now we’ll be monitoring this to see if there is broad support.
Created an Issue on GitHub to put this in our backlog: https://github.com/PowerShell/PowerShell/issues/2579
Feel free to continue voting on this item here to drive prioritization.
Thanks for the feedback. This is something that has been suggested frequently, and we are hearing you. At this time no decision has been made either way.
https://github.com/microsoft/baselinemanagement might be useful. It explicitly has “ConvertFrom-GPO”. It doesn’t support all GP resources yet, though.Kevin commented
Hi Nick... if you go to github.com/gpoguy, you will find a script to convert ADMX to DSC resource. It actually goes to a GPO and grabs configured data from Regsitry.pol and create DSC resources. Nice little tool and the beginning of what you are looking for. There could be more there to party on and add to. Not only other extensions but additional capabilities. DSC in v5 has some additional capabilities that could be exploited.
