      Hello,

      Upgrading our server farm to 2019 and I’ve noticed a few occasions when the DSC has applied successfully (i.e. there is a current.mof) that Get-DSCConfigurationStatus returns $null:

      PS C:\Users\Rob> $x = get-dscconfigurationstatus -verbose
      VERBOSE: An LCM method call arrived from computer SVR003 with user sid
      S-1-5-21-0000000000-0000000000-000000000-0000.
      VERBOSE: [SVR003]: LCM: [ End GetStatus] in 0.0000 seconds.
      PS C:\Users\Rob> $x |gm
      gm : You must specify an object for the Get-Member cmdlet.
      PS C:\Users\Rob> Test-Path C:\Windows\System32\Configuration\Current.mof
      True

      The event viewer (Microsoft\Windows\Desired State Configuration\Operational) shows:

      WarningMessage LCM failed to retrieve the configuration status for file: C:\Windows\system32\configuration\ConfigurationStatus\{78D398EF-BDA1-11E9-9782-588A5AACB812}-0.mof

      But I can’t see any reason for it. The machine is freshly built, before I started diagnosing nobody had ever logged on, we don’t run any AntiVirus or other machine-breaking software.

      I’m not really sure how to debug further! Any ideas?

      Thanks,
      Rob

      Quick follow up, the MOF that it’s looking for doesn’t actually exist:

      PS C:\Windows\System32\Configuration\ConfigurationStatus> ls

      Directory: C:\Windows\System32\Configuration\ConfigurationStatus

      Which seems mighty odd!

      I’ve got the exact same problem on 2 different servers at the moment, both freshly built on Server 2019 with:
