PowerShell DSC Resource Kit Wave 9

Over on the “Windows PowerShell Blog” they announced the release of PowerShell DSC Resource Kit Wave 9.

Head over to the blog to read all about it:

Here’s a holiday gift from the PowerShell team – the DSC Resource Kit wave 9. You can find it right here.

This wave has something for everyone, we hope. There are 34 new DSC resources across 13 modules! We have also incorporated your feedback, and made fixes to several existing resources that address issues you have encountered.

Last year we delivered the first DSC Resource Kit as a holiday gift, with 11 DSC resources. In case you are counting, we now have 172 DSC resources, enabling use of DSC for deploying and configuring Active Directory, Azure VMs, Certificate Services, SQL Server, DNS, file shares, Failover clusters, Internet Explorer, Exchange, web applications, Hyper-V, networking, Just Enough Administration, DNS, Remote Desktop Services, the System Center products (SCDPM, SCOM, SCSMA, SCSPF, SCSR, SCVMM), and more. In all, this is a great start in a single year, with more to come in 2015!
