So I’m in a perdicament. I’m new in the company I work for, and they have a project to migrate a cloud based server to an in house one. I can’t seem to get any straight answers from anyone about the existing server in the cloud other than “Herp a derp, don’t install anything new this is production!”. Compounding things is we really only have an RDP access to this (to my knowledge).
I wanna take a current configuration inventory of an existing server running 2012/r2 in a format that is “DSC friendly”, so that I can take these DSC configurations and ‘clone’ them to a test server locally. Again, I do not know with confidence all the nuances of the production server, I am rather hoping that there’s a way to leverage DSC to just pull that information for me? Does anyone have an existing script that they can use to take an existing production machine, scan its config and export it to a DSC friendly format?
Thanks for any input/advice!
