The XenDesktop7Lab composite DSC resources mask some of the underlying implementation/complexities of the individual XenDesktop7 DSC resources. The composite XenDesktop7Lab resources can be used to deploy Citrix XenDesktop v7.x via PowerShell Desired State Configuration (DSC).

NOTE: You cannot use PowerShell v5.0's PsDscRunAsCredential to deploy the XD7StoreFront* resources. Although these resources do not require a credential, it does mean that the PsDscRunAsCredential parameter cannot be used with the XD7LabSimple or the XD7LabSimpleHttps composite resource either.
