It’s community Friday here at PowerONPlatforms so decided to have a play with Azure Automation on the Microsoft Azure Portal. One of the cool features of Azure Automation is the ability to have an on-premise virtual machine as a DSC node.
The following steps go through how to create a DSC node from your on-premise environment as a resource for your Azure Automation Accounts.
3. Supply your Microsoft Azure credentials.
Note: You’ll need to supply your azure credential. I had to temporarily turn off enhanced protection on the server to get the page to display correctly.
-AutomationAccountName -ComputerName PONSMA01 -OutputFolder C:Users%username%Desktop
4. Apply the metaconfiguration to the machine.
Set-DscLocalConfigurationManager -Path C:Users%username%DesktopDscMetaConfigs -ComputerName
5. Go to portal.azure.com and verify your node is available.
