I downloaded this and ran a few reports. It's very fast and lightweight. Most of the reports are something that I could do myself by building my own export scripts, but each report would take some time to develop on my own.I am impressed with the ease of building/modifying reports. It's really simple to add/remove Active Directory fields and apply filters to the reports.It only took a few minutes for me to realize the value. I went ahead and purchased and this is going to be a real time-saver for my admin toolbox!--David from TX, United States (Source)
Introduced in Windows Management Framework 4.0, PowerShell DSC provides a configuration management platform native to operating systems later than Windows Server 2012 R2 and Windows 8.1, as well as Linux. Because we are leveraging Windows Server 2019 in this Quick Start, we are using Windows Mangement Framework 5.1 and PowerShell 5.1. Using lightweight commands called cmdlets, DSC allows you to express the desired state of your systems using declarative language syntax instead of configuring servers with complex imperative scripts. If you have worked with configuration management tools like Chef or Puppet, you will notice that DSC provides a familiar framework.
In the GitHub repo you can also review the ConfigDC1.ps1 and ConfigDC2.ps1 scripts, which are used to generate the MOF file for each node of the Quick Start. These scripts have been annotated for documentation purposes. 2b1af7f3a8
