    I have 20 production servers (2012 R2) that have had WMF 5 Production Preview uninstalled, rebooted, WMF 5 RTM installed and rebooted. I've rebuilt their MOF files (using new Cert requirements) and pushed the configuration out to them. However, they are all now giving the error below when I run a consistency check.

    "The PowerShell DSC resource MSFT_GroupResource from module does not exist at the PowerShell module path nor is it registered as a WMI DSC "

    Event log has...

    If I remove all MSFT_GroupResource from the config files then there are zero errors in event log.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    I think this might be related to a bug in the initial v5 RTM. What's the value of your PSModulePath environment variable?

    Hi Don, here you go.

    PS C:\> $env:PSModulePath
    C:\UsersZuldan\Documents\WindowsPowerShell\Modules;C:\Program Files\WindowsPowerShell\Modules;C:\Windows\system32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\Modules

    Incase anyone else is having the issue, you can get around it by using xGroup instead of Group.
