   [-CimSession <CimSession[]>]

Description

The Get-DscConfigurationStatus cmdlet retrieves detailed information about completed configuration runs on the system. By default, it returns the information about the last configuration run. This cmdlet is useful for finding historical information about configuration runs, such as when the configurations were run, the status of the runs, the number of resources in the configurations, and which resources succeeded or failed.

Examples

Example 1: Get information on the last configuration run

PS C:\> Get-DscConfigurationStatus

This command gets information on the last configuration run.

Example 2: Get information on all configurations

PS C:\> Get-DscConfigurationStatus -All

This command gets information about all the configurations that were run on the system, including the Windows PowerShell Desired State Configuration (DSC) consistency check.

Example 3: Get information on the configuration run on a remote computer

PS C:\> Get-DscConfigurationStatus -CimSession "Server01"

This command gets the configuration run details of the remote computer named Server01. This uses the WSMan transport to connect to the remote computer and requires that the connecting user be an administrator on the remote computer.

Specifies the maximum number of concurrent operations that can be established to run the cmdlet. If this parameter is omitted or a value of 0 is entered, then Windows PowerShell® calculates an optimum throttle limit for the cmdlet based on the number of CIM cmdlets that are running on the computer.
