I'm a dev and I've been jazzed by the DSC and I'm trying to getting a simple DSC push working, but running into an error.
I spun up 2 Windows Server 2012 R2 VMs in the cloud and on the target I changed the firewall restriction on the WRM rule to all IPs (its just for testing). Then on the other VM I was able to validate this by running ([b]Test-WSMan -ComputerName 126.96.36.199[/b]) and getting a valid response. I then generated the mof files and executed "[b]Start-DscConfiguration -wait -verbose -path .\WebSiteConfig[/b]". That failed with the error below:
VERBOSE: Operation 'Invoke CimMethod' complete.
VERBOSE: Time taken for configuration job to complete is 0.032 seconds
I made sure that I was running the shell as Administrator as still no go. After reading up some more, I ran a cim command ([b]Get-CimClass -ComputerName 188.8.131.52 -ClassName Win32_Process[/b]) to see if that works and that too failed
But, if I execute the same command on the target VM I get back a valid response. So I don't know if it's a firewall issue or some other configuration I need to apply on the target. I would really appreciate any pointers!!!
