The last phase in DSC is the configuration phase and in the is video we will take a look at how to apply a deisred configuration using the Start-DscConfiguration cmdlet
- [Voiceover] So now, in this video, we're gonna take a look…at how do we make our configurations?…So, how do we actually take those files that we've staged…and make that happen on our servers?…We're gonna use a powershell command…called Start-DscConfiguration.…So, on my screen here, I have a configuration…that's gonna install IIS on my target node webserver.…It's also going to go ahead and install ASP.Net45 as well.…So it's just gonna install those two things…on that webserver called webserver.…It's gonna create a configuration called IISWebsite.…
