Pull Client failing when using community resource


I’m using the cWebAdministration module to create a DSC for a simple website. I have it working and tested it by pushing to localhost. I then proceeded to test it in the Pull Mode using a new VM and it’s failing with the error below. FYI, I do not have this module installed on the Pull Client.

[blockquote]Job {833F505B-DCCE-11E4-80F2-060A93EC8201} :
This event indicates that failure happens when LCM is trying to get the configuration from pull server using download manager WebDownloadManager. ErrorId is 0x1. ErrorDetail is Cannot find module cWebAdministration_1.1.2 from the server[ConfigurationId=‘e86549dc-7a5f-45b6-9d66-560d980587a8’,ModuleName=‘cWebAdministration’,ModuleVersion=‘1.1.2’]/ModuleContent.[/blockquote]

The error seems obvious so I tried copying the module from “C:\Program Files\WindowsPowerShell\Modules\cWebAdministration” to “C:\Program Files\WindowsPowerShell\DscService\Modules” and I still get the error. When I hit the url, I’m getting a 404, but svr is reachable on that IP.

Any hunches? Whats the guideline for serving a DSC that uses custom resources?

I came across this article that shows how it needs to be done.


Thanks anyway!!!
