    Hi All
    I am trying to set up a HTTPS Pull Server and I am having problems getting the clients to recognize that a mof is valid.

    On the HTTPS Pull Server, the MOF is located at "\\wpdscweb01.intra.xxxx.com\c$\Program Files\WindowsPowerShell\DscService\Configuration\" and is called "6247b8fa-d271-4c8b-8c04-e80ae7ad2008.mof"

    On the Clients, then LCM has the following configurationID: "6247b8fa-d271-4c8b-8c04-e80ae7ad2008"

    When I run "Start-DscConfiguration -Path "\\wpdscweb01.intra.xxxx.com\c$\Program Files\WindowsPowerShell\DscService\Configuration\" -wait -verbose -force, I get the following error:

    VERBOSE: Perform operation 'Invoke CimMethod' with following parameters, "methodName' = SendConfigurationApply,'className' = MSFT_DSCLocalConfigurationManager,'namespaceName' =
    root/Microsoft/Windows/DesiredStateConfiguration'.
    WinRM cannot process the request. The following error occurred while using Kerberos authentication: Cannot find the computer 6247b8fa-d271-4c8b-8c04-e80ae7ad2008. Verify that the computer exists on the
    network and that the name provided is spelled correctly.
    + CategoryInfo : NotSpecified: (root/Microsoft/...gurationManager:String) [], CimException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : HRESULT 0x80070035
    + PSComputerName : 6247b8fa-d271-4c8b-8c04-e80ae7ad2008

    VERBOSE: Operation 'Invoke CimMethod' complete.

    Does anyone know why the client is looking for a computer called "6247b8fa-d271-4c8b-8c04-e80ae7ad2008" and not applying the configuration to itself?

    I've got past this error but now have a second 🙂

    It seems that my nodes are all expecting a different checksum when I run "update-dscconfiguration":

    VERBOSE: [WDLEGACYWEB02DE]: [] Executing Get-Action with configuration 's checksum failed.
    Please check the availability of pull server.

    I am generating the mof and checksum by doing the following:

    $source = "\\wpdscweb01.intra.xxxx.com\mofs\iisnodes\iisnodes.mof"
    $dest = "\\wpdscweb01.intra.xxxx.com\c$\Program Files\WindowsPowerShell\DscService\Configuration\$guid.mof"
    Copy-Item -Path $source -Destination $dest
    New-DSCChecksum $dest

    So, if the mof & checksum should be the smae for all nodes, how come each node is expecting a different checksum?
