Windows PowerShell has two configuration modes: push and pull. In this topic, we will learn about implementing both push and pull modes. Before we start discussing the types of configuration modes, let's recap the high-level details of DSC.
Using Windows PowerShell, we will write a configuration. This contains the elements we need to configure on target nodes.
After the successful execution of the configuration script, we get a Managed Object Format file. The MOF files are then distributed to the target nodes.
Local Configuration Manager in the target node will parse the received configurations and ensure that the nodes are in the desired state.
Distributing the MOF files to the target node is very important. To carry this out, we need to follow either a push or pull method. Most organizations use the pull mode for the reasons of standard, security, and reliability.
