    I've got an application that I run an powershell command(add-odbcdsn) as part of its install. Does anyone know of a DSC resource that could assist me with running that command?

    Nope. You'd have to do something custom, either a Script resource or a full resource. But you have to write the full Test portion to determine if your command NEEDS to be run or not.

    ODBC entries are just registry entries under HKLM\Software\ODSB\ODBC.INI\ you could just use the registry resource

    Thanks for the info Dave. I actually exported the .reg and use cRegFile Dsc resource to import it in.
