    I have 85 resources managing each server. A consistency check takes roughly 45 minutes per server. Sometimes I need to perform some work on the server. Is there anyway to stop the consistency engine without having to kill the WmiPrvSE.exe process? I think with previous versions of WMF the DSC Consistency check just used to be a scheduled task you could stop but it looks like that's changed now.

    You can't easily stop the engine in the middle of a check, no.

    Hi Don, I should have read the documentation. A running consistency check can be stopped with Stop-DscConfiguration. It works perfectly! Learn something new everyday.
