Creating a DSC Configuration error

Configuration SetFileFolder
Import-DscResource -ModuleName ‘PSDesiredStateConfiguration’
Node @(‘C10’)
File LogFiles
SourcePath = “C:\fso”
DestinationPath = “C:\scripts”
Ensure = “present”
Type = “Directory”
Recurse = $true }

Here is the error:
File C:\Users\Vester\Documents\IT 385\Untitled5.ps1 cannot be loaded. The file C:\Users\Vester\Documents\IT 385\Untitled5.ps1 is not digitally signed. You cannot run this script on the
current system. For more information about running scripts and setting execution policy, see about_Execution_Policies at

   WindowsProcess notepad
   DependsOn = "[File]Logfiles"
   Arguments = "text.txt"
   Path = "notepad.exe"
   Ensure = "Present"
   } }

SetFileFolder -output C:\Exercise21
Start-DscConfiguration -Path C:\Exercise21 -Verbose -Wait -Force

Can you run other .ps1 files without a signature in the script from your workstation?

Your error says that the script is not digitally signed, so you have a restricted execution policy.

Here’s a good article by Don Jones, might be a bit old though. Article
