Desired State Configuration Service

Hi All,

I’m struggling to get the Desrired State Configuration Pull Service working. The preview documentaion is located here:
I have downloaded the example from and compiled the needed DLL (if anyone wants it I could share it). The confiuration script completed without errors. I am struggling with the following in the documentation:

Additional files required to setup the endpoint can be found under $pshome\Modules\PSDesiredStateConfiguration\PullServer after installing the Windows PowerShell Desired State Configuration Service feature.

I have copied the files there to the C:\inetpub\wwwroot\modata folder and then I kind of don’t know where to go…

Anyone who can provide some guidance?

Cheers Marcel

Keep in mind that DSC is still very much in beta - you probably need to be a bit careful about chasing this too far, as it might just be unfinished code at this point.

I’m gonna ping Steve Murawski, though, because he’s been working with this a lot.


I’ve been spending more time with Server 2012 R2 and the pull server setup. I’ll take a look at the resources you mentioned and see if I can’t get them working and get you some feedback.
