Two vital components in DSC are configurations and resources. In this video we will take a look at their relationship to each other and their roles in the DSC platform
- [Voiceover] Now two of the basic building blocks…inside of working with DSC is understanding the differences…between configurations and resources…and it's vital that we understand this…because as we create and as you learn more about DSC,…there are a ton of great resources that are out there…not only built in, but also available on the web,…but if you don't understand the basic configurations…you can't take advantage of the resources inside of there.…First off, configurations are…all created inside of PowerShell.…They are described inside the language,…you're gonna see how these are created,…we're gonna create some configurations…from beginning to end inside of it,…but really all the configuration does,…it describes the desired state.…
Describes that actual desire configuration state…that we want those systems to be in…and what they want them to look like.…We also make sure inside those configurations files…that they're properly configured.…Now, once again, it's up to you to define…what that proper configuration is.…
Current IT pros will need to understand DSC as they move into managing Microsoft's next wave of server and cloud products that will leverage this important technology. In this course, Matt Hester shows how to write configuration documents, work with DSC resources, and apply configurations to systems via both push and pull modes. Plus, he shows how to troubleshoot DSC and use DSC in non-Windows environments like Linux.
