      Hello

      I am using Azure Automation DSC (basically DSC pull server in the cloud), but apart from that is is basically DSC

      I followed the following article to onboard a node to DSC

      https://www.poweronplatforms.com/onboarding-premise-virtual-machine-azure-automation-dsc/

      I used the following (as seen in the article)

      # Define the parameters for Get-AzureRmAutomationDscOnboardingMetaconfig using PowerShell Splatting
      $Params = @{
      ResourceGroupName = 'RG_01'; # The name of the Resource Group that contains your Azure Automation Account
      AutomationAccountName = 'AutomationAccount-01'; # The name of the Azure Automation Account where you want a node on-boarded to
      ComputerName = @('ADDS02'); # The names of the computers that the meta configuration will be generated for
      OutputFolder = "C:\MOFs;
      }
      # Use PowerShell splatting to pass parameters to the Azure Automation cmdlet being invoked
      # For more info about splatting, run: Get-Help -Name about_Splatting
      
      Get-AzureRmAutomationDscOnboardingMetaconfig @Params

      Then on the computer in question I did the following

      Set-DscLocalConfigurationManager -Path C:\MOFs

      That worked fine and the node was onboarded OK

      However, the node did not have a ‘configuration’ assigned to it (which of course I can do after the fact manually). However I want to automatically assign a configuration to the node via PowerShell, I could not see a parameter to add to

      Set-DscLocalConfigurationManager 

      perhaps I missed it, therefore can someone please let me know the PowerShell command I need to assign a DSC configuration to a node?

      Thanks very much
