Hi all,

I'm trying to apply DSC (PUSH mode) on Windows Server 2016 (Azure VM). All works fine, DSC finishes, I get the event 4251 (Operation Consistency Check or Pull completed successfully.), but when I try to get the status from PowerShell console, with Get-DscConfigurationStatus, I receive : WarningMessage LCM failed to retrieve the configuration status for file: C:\Windows\System32\Configuration\ConfigurationStatus\{xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxx}-0.mof

This is the LCM config:
Job runs under the following LCM setting.
ConfigurationMode: ApplyOnly
ConfigurationModeFrequencyMins: 15
RefreshMode: PUSH
RefreshFrequencyMins: 30
RebootNodeIfNeeded: NONE
DebugMode: True

Any idea why I can't get the status? I need this in an automated pipeline, which determines that DSC has finished and continues with other configuration steps.
FYI, this works perfectly on Windows Server 2012 R2 (Azure VM).

I can't say why it is unable to retrieve the mof file. I am doing similar processing and run Test-DSCConfiguration with the path to my mof file to verify that I am in a compliant state. Seems like Get-DSCConfiguirationStatus would make sense, but I suppose you could do it either way?

Thanks for the reply. Will try that too, but I still can't figure out why Get-DscConfigurationStatus won't work.
