New release: SharePointDsc v2.2 is out!

Hello all,
 
We just created a new release of SharePointDsc, version 2.2. Over the last weeks we've implemented many bugfixes and a couple of new resources. This release will be part of the DSC Resource Kit which will be released later today (March 21st 2018).

This release fixes the issue in the User Profile Service resources, which broke with the release of v2.0.
 
Improvement/Fixes in v2.2

  • SPAlternateURL
    • If resource specifies Central Admin webapp and Default Zone, the existing AAM will be updated instead of adding a new one
  • SPContentDatabase
    • Fixed issue where mounting a content database which had to be upgraded resulted in a reboot.
  • SPDistributedCacheClientSettings
    • Added the new resource
  • SPFarmAdministrators
    • Fixed issue where member comparisons was case sensitive. This had to be case insensitive.
  • SPManagedMetadataServiceApp
    • Fixed issue with creating the Content Type Hub on an existing MMS service app without Content Type Hub.
  • SPManagedMetadataServiceAppDefault
    • Fixed issue where .GetType().FullName and TypeName were not used properly.
  • SPTimerJobState
    • Updated description of WebAppUrl parameter to make it clear that "N/A" has to be used to specify a global timer job.
  • SPUserProfileServiceApp
    • Fixed issue introduced in v2.0, where the Farm Account had to have local Administrator permissions for the resource to function properly.
    • Updated resource to retrieve the Farm account from the Managed Accounts instead of requiring it as a parameter.
  • SPUserProfileSyncService
    • Fixed issue introduced in v2.0, where the Farm Account had to have local Administrator permissions for the resource to function properly.
    • Updated resource to retrieve the Farm account from the Managed Accounts instead of requiring it as a parameter.
    • The FarmAccount parameter is deprecated and no longer required. Is ignored in the code and will be removed in v3.0.
  • SPVisioServiceApp
    • Fixed an issue where the proxy is not properly getting created
