Has anyone experience installing a feature (using the feature resource) that requires a server restart before continuing on with the rest of the configuration (e.g. web-mgmt.-console)
Yup. I usually set auto-reboot to True before starting a big config like that.
Will that work for both push/pull
Where do you set this in a LocalConfigurationManager section in the configuration script?
It’s the RebootNodeIfNeeded setting. Run Get-DSCLocalConfigurationManager; you’ll see the setting.
