    I just installed the PSv5 production preview, so I am going through my previous configuration validating nothing is broken. For my configurations that use domain users for some resources, e.g. xADUser, when building the configuration it produces a warning:

    WARNING: It is not recommended to use domain credential for node 'node.domain.local'. In order to suppress the warning, you can add a property named 'PSDscAllowDomainUser' with a value of $true to your DSC configuration data for node 'node.domain.local'.

    I know the obvious way to get rid of it, but I'm just wondering since this was added to the core product as a warning, am I doing something not optimal/desirable by using domain users in my resources/configs?

    Hmm, that's new. I suppose maybe Microsoft wants to make it clear that DSC and Active Directory have no dependencies on each other unless you choose to make it so.

    Anyhow, I'd say that you're fine, and you should just add the suppression property to your configuration data.
