Just started trying DSC on Linux in Azure and getting a bit confused.
On the one hand, there’s the VM Extension which takes care of OMI and the DSC Agent and supports Ubuntu “EXCEPT 12.04 LTS, 14.04 LTS, 16.04 LTS”.
Then there’s https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/dsc/lnxgettingstarted which ONLY supports 12.04 LTS, 14.04 LTS, 16.04 LTS.
This kind of makes sense. Old one for the older versions, new for the newer. However, apart from how to install it, there’s no documentation about the newer extension. I’m presuming that the built-in nx* functions are all there, but given the lack of documentation I can find, I don’t know if it’s all the same or not.
Anyone got any better insight?
