<11ScriptWarrior> ## Do they use splunk to data mine those logs?
<0logicaldiagram> ## What "provider" do you use for IIS?
<10Neptune443> ## Can you expand on the pull setup? TechNet docs are just wrong and the DSC-service in R2 RTM seems to be pretty much broken out of the box.
<11ScriptWarrior> ## Well plus by automating you are taking human error out of the deployment process
<0logicaldiagram> ## Do you have one .Net application for all the StackExchange "sites"?
<11ScriptWarrior> ## So is that like VM Snapshots?
<0halr9000> ## how do you make a provider?
<11ScriptWarrior> ## Just out of curiosity what brand of hardware do you use at Stack?
<11ScriptWarrior> ## What do you use to monitor the servers? Â Dell OpenView? Â SCOM?
<0logicaldiagram> ## Any real-user monitoring?
<11ScriptWarrior> ## Why not use SCOM?
<10Neptune443> ## Can you quickly run through what you need to do to package up both configurations and providers for the pull server?
