[quote quote=201138]Writing our horror story. We’re using a DSC pull server with a SQL backend. We have around 4000 nodes. When we implemented our pull server, we were unaware of this 1000:1 limit. Last September, we suddenly started having intermittent failures when servers were running consistency checks. After 4 months of talks with MS support and countless logs sent, they told us of this limit and that the recommendation is to use Azure DSC for our size environment, but they have no migration documentation available for us to migrate our current environment to Azure DSC.
Thanks for sharing your story. I don’t feel so bad now asking such an open ended question! I have found the reference to Azure DSC also, but I still don’t know how much of a difference it would make. We like to keep things internal to our network as we are an K-12 EDU, but we have also been pushed by Microsoft to Azure and AWS for other things as well. You know what they say about “cloud computing” right? It’s just someone else’s computer(s) and network!
