    I can reproduce the hanging Out-Gridview behaviour. It blocks the runscapce the ogv was executed in.

    Justin,

    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!

    I'm in the same boat as Justin. Azure is not an option for us (for legal reasons) so the only other option is to use the WMF5 v2 Pull Server.

    I'd have written a nice and responsive Bootstrap/Angularjs front-end for it already if we had an DSC report server API documentation. Unfortunately that is not the case and could also be handled by the community just as Justin suggested.

    We're in the middle of building a PKI with DSC and steps for proper DSC certificate managament are missing from the DSC documentation (which is a topic that the MS can discuss with the community in my opinion).

    In general the release of the DSC Pull Server has been a bumpy ride. The worst thing is not having the server use certificates at all in its default configuration (https and credential encryption in mofs). That's a big no-no and should be fixed asap. The internet is full with blog posts recommending to set PSDscAllowPlainTextPassword = $true.

    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.

    Sebastian N. commented  · 

    Git support rather than github support is the only viable solution as not all PowerShell users that use git use github as their version control system.

    Thanks for the feedback, Sebastian! I have changed the status to survey to get a better feel for how important this is for customers in general.

    I second this. We really need a way to pull all registered clients from the report server for reporting purposes (an API documentation in general would be nice, too).

    But if that'S all he cares about then he can just turn off UAC since that'S responsible for giving admins a standard user token by default.

    A somewhat usable workaround is "start-process powershell -verb runas" but it doesn't accept the -nonewwindows parameter. The question is whether the Windows Kernel is able to provide this sort of functionality in its current form.

    That's a known limitation of PowerShell. The PS parser interprets the square brackets if used with the -Path parameter. That's why there is the -LiteralPath parameter to tell PS to skip interpreting the specified path entirely.

    I can reproduce that error with PSv5. As soon as the comment based help is removed the values from the validate set are listed in the Get-Help output.

    The error message is completely fine. It tells you that you're missing a -Path or -LiteralPath parameter. In addition it tells you that these two parameters cannot be used concurrently with Export-CSV which is just a clarification on the use of the two possible mandatory parameters.

    That's a change that can not easily be backported and unrolling the array by enclosing it with parentheses is simple enough:

    PS > (Invoke-RestMethod https://api.github.com/users/nightroman/repos) | measure

    Count : 8
    Average :
    Sum :
    Maximum :
    Minimum :
    Property :

    I guess improving the documentation of the cmdlet should do the trick.

    Yeah, the slow adoption of DSC is directly related to the lack of proper tooling even though it's been around for a while now.
