PSDscResources

PSDscResources is the new home of the in-box resources from PSDesiredStateConfiguration.

These resources are a combination of those in the in-box PSDesiredStateConfiguration module as well as community contributions from our experimental xPSDesiredStateConfiguration module on GitHub. These resources have also recently been updated to meet the DSC Resource Kit High Quality Resource Module (HQRM) guidelines.

In-box resources not currently included in this module should not be affected and can still load from the in-box PSDesiredStateConfiguration module.

Because PSDscResources overwrites in-box resources, it is only available for WMF 5.1. Many of the resource updates provided here are also included in the xPSDesiredStateConfiguration module which is still compatible with WMF 4 and WMF 5 (though this module is not supported and may be removed in the future).

To update your in-box resources to the newest versions provided by PSDscResources, first install PSDscResources from the PowerShell Gallery:

Install-Module PSDscResources

Then, simply add this line to your DSC configuration:

Import-DscResource -ModuleName PSDscResources

This project has adopted the Microsoft Open Source Code of Conduct. For more information see the Code of Conduct FAQ or contact opencode@microsoft.com with any additional questions or comments.

An invalid argument exception will be thrown if Checksum is specified while Validate is specified as false. ModifiedDate will check that the LastWriteTime property of the file at the destination matches the LastWriteTime property of the file in the archive. CreatedDate will check that the CreationTime property of the file at the destination matches the CreationTime property of the file in the archive. SHA-1, SHA-256, and SHA-512 will check that the hash of the file at the destination by the specified SHA method matches the hash of the file in the archive by the specified SHA method. The default value is ModifiedDate. { ModifiedDate | CreatedDate | SHA-1 | SHA-256 | SHA-512 }
  • [System.Management.Automation.PSCredential] Credential (Write): The credential of a user account with permissions to access the specified archive path and destination if needed.

  • Updated User to have non-dependent unit tests.
  • Ported fixes from xPSDesiredStateConfiguration:
    • WindowsProcess: Minor updates to integration tests
    • Registry: Fixed support for forward slashes in registry key names
  • Group:
    • Group members in the "NT Authority", "BuiltIn" and "NT Service" scopes should now be resolved without an error. If you were seeing the errors "Exception calling ".ctor" with "4" argument(s): "Server names cannot contain a space character."" or "Exception calling ".ctor" with "2" argument(s): "Server names cannot contain a space character."", this fix should resolve those errors. If you are still seeing one of the errors, there is probably another local scope we need to add. Please let us know.
