Hey :) Is there any plan to have a DSC module or something like that for puppet? Im sorry if this question was asked before, though I didn't find one.

If Im looking 2-3 years from now, the Windows servers will be managed entirely through DSC, as it's far better than manage windows hosts with Exec/Powershell/Registry modules (the only limitation is that it's supported from 2008R2), and as we all know, organizations always tries to consolidate tools.

Thank you very much.

Hey, DSC is "Desired State Configuration" - A CM feature introduced in Powershell 4.0 for managing windows hosts above 2008r2.

I spoke to my TAM at Microsoft who said that Puppet has a plugin for DSC but I'm still not finding it.
