@andrewrmoreland probably a bit easier to answer in http://t.co/9x8P331ipQ Forums if you don"t mind posting some more detail.— Don Jones (@concentrateddon) February 2, 2015
We are currently designing a new platform - a key component of which is Powershell DSC.
We asked Dell to do a demo of the Force 10 switches specifically the S55 and S4810 models. When we got onto the topic of automation - Dell kept referring to Open Automation Framework (OAF) (I’m still laughing at the acronym) using REST API’s and didn’t seem to have any knowledge of Powershell DSC.
I was starting to doubt whether or not Powershell DSC could be used i.e. is the switch capable of taking a Powershell generated MOF file itself or does it rely on a ‘Management machine’ interacting with OAF? If it does support Powershell DSC - does it support a Pull Server as well as Push?
Any demos or further information would be greatly appreciated - especially if we can give them back to Dell pre-sales!!
P.S. Just found the following video on Channel 9 - http://channel9.msdn.com/Events/TechEd/Europe/2014/CDP-B330. At 37.14 it shows a Powershell DSC generated MOF file being pushed to the switch. I guess that answers my questions, but any additional details anyone can share would be great.
