Description

The Start-AzureRmAutomationDscNodeConfigurationDeployment cmdlet deployes a Desired State Configuration (DSC) node configuration in Azure Automation.

Examples

Example 1: Deploy an Azure DSC node configuration in Automation

PS C:\> $pilot = @("WebServerPilot1", "WebServerPilot2")
PS C:\> $prod = @("WebServerProd1", "WebServerProd2")
PS C:\> $nodes = @($pilot, $prod)
PS C:\> Start-AzureRmAutomationDscNodeConfigurationDeployment `
            -NodeConfigurationName "Config01.Node1" `
            -AutomationAccountName "Contoso01"  `
            -ResourceGroupName "ResourceGroup01" `
            -NodeName $nodes `

ResourceGroupName     : ResourceGroup01
AutomationAccountName : Contoso01
JobId                 : 35b14eb4-52b7-4a1d-ad62-8e9f84adc657
Job                   : Microsoft.Azure.Commands.Automation.Model.Job
JobStatus             : New
NodeStatus            :
NodeConfigurationName : Config01.Node1
JobSchedule           :
JobScheduleId         : 00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000

The above command deploys the DSC node configuration named "Config01.Node1" to the given two-dimensional array of Node Names. The deployment happens in a staged manner.

Example 2: Schedule an Azure DSC node configuration deployment in Automation

PS C:\> $sched = New-AzureRmAutomationSchedule -AutomationAccountName "Contoso01" `
            -ResourceGroupName "ResourceGroup01" `
            -Name "TestSchedule" `
            -StartTime "23:00" `
            -OneTime
PS C:\> $pilot = @("WebServerPilot1", "WebServerPilot2")
PS C:\> $prod = @("WebServerProd1", "WebServerProd2")
PS C:\> $nodes = @($pilot, $prod)
PS C:\> Start-AzureRmAutomationDscNodeConfigurationDeployment `
            -NodeConfigurationName "Config01.Node1" `
            -AutomationAccountName "Contoso01"  `
            -ResourceGroupName "ResourceGroup01" `
            -NodeName $nodes `
            -Schedule $sched
