Chapter 5. Pushing DSC Configurations

We have covered everything there is to know about DSC and its internals at this point, but we have not fully explained the different ways DSC configurations actually get to the target nodes. In the first chapters of the book, we learned that there are two models to DSC: a push and a pull model. In this chapter, we will be covering the push model. We will first define what the push model is and then move on to how to use it with DSC configurations. We'll take an example configuration and apply it to a local target node and a remote target node.

In this chapter, we will cover the following topics:

  • Tooling

  • Setting things up

  • Locally pushing DSC configurations

  • Remotely pushing DSC configurations
