    I can duplicate this.

    Also, -CONFIRM also is not respected. And there is no -Verbose output either.

    I disagree. I like having one place for add-on modules (IE PS Gallery). It is a one-stop-shop for stuff I need.

    MongoDB is, so it would seem, a commercial product for which licenses are required But what you are loading when you install that module is the CMdlets that are used to manage Mongo DB. And, so it would appear, those are free. What is not free is the server itself.

    Having support modules (that are free) for commercial software seems highly appropriate. Would you have PSGallery remove VMware cmdlets that manage vSphere (another commercial product)?

    i once added a bunch of samples - but MS seems to have removed a bunch of these.

    If nothing else, allow community to add these examples. Open it back up again (and continue counting) and I'll happily add samples!

    What would you describe as “official”? We are moving forward with some of the x-named DSC resources in the Gallery, with the intent of removing the x and fully supporting them once they hit a certain level of quality. Is that sufficient?

    Thomas Lee commented  · 

    Justin: many large organisations (and some small ones) only ever use fully supported and released software. A DSC resource should be no different. There are already some 'relased' resources (https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/dsc/builtinresource). As to community suppoted - I love the concept, but customers pay for released code (and for supporting released code). What happens when a PSGallery item has a bug - Does MS just say 'not ours - too bad'???

    Thomas Lee commented  · 

    Thinking more about this, what I'd like to see is two things:
    1. The 'official' or 'released' resources should be capable of being seen with Get-DSC resource. The released resources should be added to the PSDesiredStateConfiguration module which should be updated each time new resources are officially launched.
    2. The names of these newly released resources and fully supported resources should be added to the page: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/dsc/builtinresource

    Thomas Lee commented  · 

    That would work nicely. At the same time, I'd like to see the DSC Resources ship with Windows Server and be provided via WIndows Update.

    There is an about_classes help page inside PowerShell, but there is no online page, so
    Get-Help About_classes -online gives an error:

    get-help : The online version of this Help topic cannot be displayed because the Internet address (URI) of the Help topic is not specified in the command code or in the help file for the
    command.

    In the old days, errors like this would have been fixed immediately.

    Any chance it can get fixed?

    if MS does do it, I'd like to see two things:
    1. A toggle in the $PseIse.Options object that enables/disables this. There are going to be times when I do NOT want previously opened files to open up.
    2. How about a control key option at start up -so that THIS time ISE starts, no previously opened files?

    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
