Using Windows PowerShell Desired State Configuration in AWSGo to Lab
Dear QwikLabs Team, Many Thanks for the Lab about Windows PowerShell Desired State Configuration in AWS. Kind Regards Binayaka Mishra
Web interface didn't work particularly well in Chrome on a Mac, unable to follow the instructions and add a rule. Will try again with a Windows machine
Due to firewall restrictions at the office, I was unable to RDP to the RDGW but was able to follow the course nevertheless
On Step 108 when I ran ForcePull.ps1 I received the following error even though all previous steps had been successful and produced the results expected by the lab. WinRM cannot process the request. The following error occurred while using Kerberos authentication: Cannot find the computer rdgw.qlstudentdomain.local. Verify that the computer exists on the network and that the name provided is spelled correctly. + CategoryInfo : NotSpecified: (root/Microsoft/...gurationManager:String) , CimException + FullyQualifiedErrorId : HRESULT 0x80070035 + PSComputerName : rdgw.qlstudentdomain.local
The link to get the DSC module doesn't exist anymore, so you can't complete the lab.
Good Introduction on setting standard Config using PowerShell.
I got this message on the DSCServer VERBOSE: Performing the operation "Start-DscConfiguration: SendMetaConfigurationApply" on target "MSFT_DSCLocalConfigurationManager". VERBOSE: Perform operation 'Invoke CimMethod' with following parameters, ''methodName' = SendMetaConfigurationApply,'className' = MSFT_DSCLocalConfigurationManager,'namespaceName' = root/Microsoft/Windows/DesiredStateConfiguration'. WinRM cannot complete the operation. Verify that the specified computer name is valid, that the computer is accessible over the network, and that a firewall exception for the WinRM service is enabled and allows access from this computer. By default, the WinRM firewall exception for public profiles limits access to remote computers within the same local subnet. + CategoryInfo : ConnectionError: (root/Microsoft/...gurationManager:String) , CimException + FullyQualifiedErrorId : HRESULT 0x80338126 + PSComputerName : rdgw.qlstudentdomain.local VERBOSE: Operation 'Invoke CimMethod' complete. VERBOSE: Set-DscLocalConfigurationManager finished in 63.037 seconds.
I messed up the instructions so I had to start again.
Another excellent lab
