    Is it possible to use a machine on Linux with DSC as DSC pull server (but clients machines have only Windows system)? I will be grateful for any useful information.

    AFAIK, No... But it will be possible soon.

    Please refer to below link for understanding how it will be...

    I don't think it will be available soon, or at all, from Microsoft... let me explain:

    – Microsoft is not releasing a new version of a DSC Pull Server, their answer is Azure Automation DSC service, and whether that will be available to run on your own linux vm/container or anything is unlikely...
    – Maybe running the 2019 Pull server on Windows and having the SQL server backend on Linux is possible, but I don't think it's the question
    – The community projects that could run on linux are:

    • Traek (technically a set of 6 microservices based on NodeJS by former DSC PM Mark Gray who did it on the side)
    • Tug (a .Net Core implementation of the PS-DSCPM protocol, but the Windows PowerShell 5.1 handler would only works on Windows, for obvious reasons)
    • DSCPullaris, a Work-in-progress project based on Polaris by Ben Gelens

    Which one will be production-ready first is not defined yet, but do show interest and support if you are interested!

    May I ask what's your use case?

      Of course, I have few Windows machines somewhere in network and one Linux server and I want to client machines (Windows) will be able to pull file from server if is changing, download it, stop service, change file, and start service again. I want to make everything as automatic as possible. In the future I want to have possibility to make other changes too.
      Thanks for your answer I am testing Puppet now and I think that this will be good solution of my problem.
