    At least use a consolidated server list and provide a rest API so we can push changes if needed.

    This is very scattered as-is.

    This was an unfortunate discovery. Server lists being per-account creates a lot of unnecessary work in consuming this product in gateway mode, and relegates this mostly to the local desktop.

    I'm guessing this is a subtle attempt to push things into Azure Arc, which is unfortunate as this is otherwise a great tool.

    In gateway mode this really needs two things:

    1. a common server list for all users.
    2. an API to push new servers to the list or a way to configure a server query so we can automate machine population.

    This system is nice ... but really falling short in being "consumable out the door" for new users

    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!

    MarkG

    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.

    investigating  ·  Mark Gray responded

    Justin,

    This behavior is common to all DSC resources, if I understand your issue correctly. If there are multiple versions of a module installed on your authoring system, you must specify the version that you intend to use in your configuration.

    What behavior are you expecting?

    I would expect it to default to the latest version, possibly return a warning that multiple versions were detected and that version x.x.x was used.

    Currently, you get no indication that it's even a version issue as the composite resource refuses to load at all so the error you get when trying to compile a mof is that it can't find said composite resource. It's only when you open it in ISE do you see the warning that it's expecting the version to be defined because multiple versions exist.

    This could be a curve ball for anyone making their "first configuration" to have it randomly break the first time they play with "update-module"
