Installing features the require reboot before continue

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.
