Using Windows PowerShell Desired State Configuration in AWSGo to Lab
Very useful. Thanks!
passwords should be in one place rather than having to locate them, copy and paste doesn't always work,each step should be explained why you are doing them!
did not start
Could use a little more description as to the purpose of the various DSC files/commands for those who don't have pre-existing knowledge of DSC
Not really AWS feature but still cool lab
The lab should have configured the pull interval for 5 minutes so that the student could actually validate the configuration of the IIS feature. I don't see how this lab was of any value for teaching Microsoft DSC or AWS EC2. There are far better learning resources online for free to actually learn and understand DSC. Any student would be misled to believe that they know something about DSC or AWS from completing this lab.
Need to add note regarding the need to add in a WinRM security rule in the AWS console.
add step to open winrm port to security group
The DC user is Administrator not administrator
Finally had enough time. Would like topography
Easy to follow walk through.
This lab collapsed at step 71. the box 'rdgw' was not on the domain, was not named rdgq, and was not accessible via DNS name. I put it on the domain, configured it in DNS etc... and was able to move on. Then in Step 73 the dsc configuration failed because the 'NewPullServer' directory did not exist. The extracted .zip provided from MS seemed to be missing files. At that point I was half way into the lab and spent most of my time troubleshooting issues with the lab, so I ended it.
