These DSC functional tests fail on a test system that is undersized/under high load:

We've worked around them by increasing the resources on the tester, but they likely indicate an intermittent failure in dsc_script.

WBEM_E_SHUTTING_DOWN = 0x80041033,

We could likely capture that error and retry in a few seconds.

Replication Case

Run the functional tests on an undersized windows system.


  1) Chef::Resource::DscScript when supplying configuration using the path attribute behaves like a dsc_script resource with specified PowerShell configuration code should create a registry key with a specific registry value and data
