So I have spent about 10 hours in the last 3 days trying to resolve this.

I have.
Installed the preview ps 5
installed mva* modules
Checked the permissions for my share (everyone everything)
Changed my share (MOF instead of DSCSMB)

I am using server 2012 r2 the evaluation VHD from Microsoft

I can log on S1 and browse \\AD\MOF and see the files
I can delete and rename the files
The GuID # Matches my configuration file name (generated with the MVA scripts)

I have done much more but my brain is numb, any suggestions??

PS C:\> Update-DscConfiguration -ComputerName S1 -wait #Check to see if it installs
The file \\Ad\MOF\da28698b-ed04-4b7f-9d2c-796e6fec2ec9.mof is not found.
+ CategoryInfo : ObjectNotFound: (\\Ad\MOF\da2869...96e6fec2ec9.mof:String) [], CimException
+ FullyQualifiedErrorId : DSCFileFileNotFound,Microsoft.PowerShell.DesiredStateConfiguration.DownloadManager.FileGetActionCommand
+ PSComputerName : S1

Hi Ernesto,

Whats the output from Get-DscLocalConfigurationManager?

On the Box with the share or "pushserver"

PS C:\> Get-DscLocalConfigurationManager

ActionAfterReboot : ContinueConfiguration

On the Remote Server I am attempting to load windows server backup onto

[S2]: PS C:\> Get-DscLocalConfigurationManager

My ConfigurationID may be different then the above post because I attempted to repeat the process multiple times. Each a failure. I could post my step by step but that's a lot of code.

I believe that DSC runs under the system account. Does the system account have access to that smb share?

If you expand [ConfigurationRepositoryShare]DSCSMB using something like show-object is the path correct 100%?

Show-object is in the powershellcookbook module by Lee Holmes

The Share path is correct but I did not think about the system account not having access to the SMB Share.

Did you get this fixed?
