HAs anyone ever seen a DSC error for package that say the Name and Identifyingnumber don't match. When they actually do? Take a look at the error bellow and you'll notice that they match what they say it should be.

"PowerShell DSC resource MSFT_PackageResource failed to execute Set-TargetResource functionality with error message:
The specified Name (RiskAgility FM Compute) and IdentifyingNumber ({D85F51A2-7730-4986-BA84-8DCADC0AA4D1}) do not
match Name (RiskAgility FM Compute Node) and IdentifyingNumber ({D85F51A2-7730-4986-BA84-8DCADC0AA4D1}) in the MSI
file
+ CategoryInfo : InvalidOperation: (:) [], CimException"

I'm assuming that RiskAgility FM Compute is the name that you're specifying in the name field for xPackage, and that RiskAgility FM Compute Node is actually what is being registered? You might try updating the name field to RiskAgility FM Compute Node and see if it goes through.
