I’ve recently finished reading the DSC book but I’m still struggling to conceptualize the relationship between the configuration name in the LCM config and the node name in the configuration data file when the configuration name is something like Server2012R2. There is really only one example in the book about configuring time zones that touches on configuration names. Every other example I can find of configuration data files uses the actual server names for node names. Using a configuration name like Server2012R2 would everything in the configuration data file just fall under node name with a ‘*’?
How do other people approach this? Is it better to use the server name as the configuration name in the LCM and just list out all the servers separately in the configuration data?
