Windows PowerShell Desired State Configuration (DSC)

Presented by

Jeff Wouters - MVP Windows PowerShell

About this talk

To fix a configuration that drifted from the desired state. This is the description of Windows PowerShell PowerShell Desired State Configuration. Who doesn’t know the long search for the cause when something stopped working? Two identical servers, where one works and one does not. You can solve this by standardization and compliancy enforcement of that standard. DSC is all about that. You define a state you want the configuration to be in and hold this against a server or client. If it isn’t compliant with the desired state, it will get fixed. This is the future of management in Windows environments. During this webinar, Jeff will show both how DSC can be used for compliancy enforcement, but also as a deployment solution.
