We just released the DSC Resource Kit!

This release includes updates to 7 DSC resource modules, including 10 new DSC resources. In these past 6 weeks, 71 pull requests have been merged and 37 issues have been closed, all thanks to our amazing community!

The modules updated in this release are:

  • AuditPolicyDsc
  • xDismFeature
  • xExchange
  • xNetworking
  • xPSDesiredStateConfiguration
  • xSQLServer
  • xWebAdministration

For a detailed list of the resource modules and fixes in this release, see the Included in this Release section below.

xHyper-V has changes to be released, but the tests have a few issues at the moment. We will release it as soon as those issues are resolved.

PSDscResources does not currently have any changes to release, but there are some changes queuing up. We will release it again soon once those changes are ready.

We will update this blog post when either of these modules is released.

A new version of xActiveDirectory was also released about two weeks ago with some bug fixes for xADDomain and xADDomainController.

Our last community call for the DSC Resource Kit was last week on January 18. A recording of our updates as well as summarizing notes are available. Join us next time at 9AM PST on March 1 to ask questions and give feedback about your experience with the DSC Resource Kit. Keep an eye on the community agenda for the link to the call agenda.

We strongly encourage you to update to the newest version of all modules using the PowerShell Gallery, and dont forget to give us your feedback in the comments below, on GitHub, or on Twitter (@PowerShell_Team)!

All resources with the x prefix in their names are still experimental this means that those resources are provided AS IS and are not supported through any Microsoft support program or service. If you find a problem with a resource, please file an issue on GitHub.
