Hello everybody! My name is Patrik and I'm new in this forum. I'm also new to DSC, I have just started poking around with it.

According to https://powershell.org/2014/09/09/powershell-v5-whats-new-in-dsc/ there should be a cmdlet named Compare-DSCConfiguration. However It seems for some reason to be missing in my configuration?

For Example when running Get-Help *-DSC* I only get these:

Name
—-
Disable-DscDebug
Enable-DscDebug
Get-DscConfiguration
Get-DscConfigurationStatus
Get-DscLocalConfigurationManager
Get-DscResource
New-DSCCheckSum
Remove-DscConfigurationDocument
Restore-DscConfiguration
Stop-DscConfiguration
Find-DscResource
Invoke-DscResource
Publish-DscConfiguration
Set-DscLocalConfigurationManager
Start-DscConfiguration
Test-DscConfiguration
Update-DscConfiguration

I'm running Windows 10 Enterprise Version 1511 (Build 10586.164) and $PSVersionTable.PSVersion is 5.0.10586.122

Thanks in advance, Patrik

Use Test-DscConfiguration 🙂

Remember that old documentation (2014 🙂 ) usualy changes till its RTM. 🙂
