In This Episode

Tonight on the PowerScripting Podcast, we talk to Narayanan Lakshmanan from the PowerShell team about DSC



Guest - Narayanan Lakshmanan



Chatroom Highlights:

<JimB_> ### for a DSC noob, how well does it compare with Puppet?  Linux guys are pushing and I am not too familiar with it.  Does an IT shop need both?

<marc_carter> ##DSC noob here too...any suggestions or some practical examples to gain some familiarity?

<alexandair1> ## when can we expect to get resources written by other product teams?

<stevenmurawski> ##Will Test-TargetResource tell you what's deviating if it fails?

<justpaul> ## will MS require the various teams to provide DSC resources (aka stop-ship, like they did with powerShell cmdlets)

<stevenmurawski> ##When will the DscResourceDesigner's Test-DscResource handle more complex schema.mofs?

<stevenmurawski> ##What's failing is the wave resources that you've released fail to validate with Test-DscResource

<stevenmurawski> ## How far downlevel will WMF5 be supported?  2008R2?

<stevenmurawski> ### What is N for WMF5?

<alevyinroc> totally unrelated…on win 8.1, how would one get past “access denied” when trying to use location services (like this: http://www.verboon.info/2013/10/powershell-script-get-computergeolocation/)
