After you have applied a configuration you will want to test it. Some of your configurations you ap[ly you can check and see if they pass the eyeball test to verify the configuration. Other configurations maybe more complex, in this video we will take a l
- [Voiceover] So as you start working…with your DSC configurations…and you actually use the Start-DscConfiguration cmdlet…to actually apply those configurations and make it so,…how do you know that it worked?…Well there's a lot of common ways we can test it.…And the first one I just simply call the eyeball test.…Check to see if things are there…so we know in the last configuration I installed ASP.NET 4.5…so what I can do is just run a quick check.…Is that feature there? Did it get installed properly?…Oh, it's there.…Well also in that last configuration…I actually installed IIS. Did the website show up?…O yeah it is. I can actually see the default website.…
So you can use your eyeballs to check some of those things.…You can even go in and take a look at…some of the actual servers that we have…and look for those features and functionalities.…So if I refresh this,…I should hopefully see IIS pop-up over there.…So I can just do my eyeballs…and see what some of those configurations are there.…So when you're doing some of those really broad brush stroke…
