I’m just starting to use DSC and am working on setting up a new test Hyper-V cluster. I am planning on having 3 nodes all use the same MOF file. I have gotten my MOF configured and working with the initial node and am now working on starting the next 2 nodes on pulling down the MOF.
What is the best practice in this situation, I’m assuming instead of using a node of the computernames under my configuration I should instead use Localhost so that it can apply to any of the machines. Is that right, or is there a better way I should be handling that?
Also I noticed that when I initially started having one of the new nodes pull down the MOF file it was getting the “Current configuration does not exist.” error that KB2883200 fixes, however this was a fresh install of 2012 R2 with Update 1, so it was already up to date. It looks like changing the node name in the configuration to that specific server name made it start working, and then switching back to Localhost kept working. I am planning on testing that more with the third node that I am currently in the process of bringing up.
If there is any more information that would be helpful please let me know.
