    I've got 3 Web Farms setup, and I'm using DSC to manage the configuration of these farms through a pull server.

    Everything has been humming along for month now, but today I started getting errors in the DSC event log on one, of the six servers in this farm.

    So, in other words, 5 servers are successfully checking the same guid.mof on my pull server. And just this one is throwing the following error.

    EventID: 4104
    Job {E375A349-171A-4212-B830-8BD15FDF5BC1} :
    This event indicates that failure happens when LCM is trying to get the configuration from pull server using download manager WebDownloadManager. ErrorId is 0x1. ErrorDetail is A generic exception occured during the importing of Download Manager module WebDownloadManager.

    I've tried to rerun the task manually a few times, but the same error just keeps occurring.

    Trying to understand exactly what is the 'WebDownloadManager' so that I can troubleshoot it.

    The WebDownloadManager determines how the LCM on your server is should pull the latest configuration. The WebDownloadManager pulls from a DSC website. The FileDownloadManager pulls from a file system directory/SMB share.

    How are your other servers configured? Use Get-DscLocalConfigurationManager to check.

    They all use the WebDownloadManager.

    Where is this 'module' so that I can figure out what is wrong with it on this single server?

    What module?

    Exactly! From the error.

    "ErrorDetail is A generic exception occured during the importing of Download Manager [b]module WebDownloadManager[/b]."

    A reboot has fixed the problem, but it sure would be nice to be able to identify a root cause.

    Really not a fan of rebooting a high volume front end web server to stop a consistency check error. Especially since I know there have been no configuration changes to the box.
