Yesterday version 2.5 of SharePointDsc has been released to the PowerShell Gallery. Over the last weeks we've implemented many bugfixes and improvements to the module. One new resource has been added, SPSiteUrl, which is able to configure the site url for host named site collections. This release is part of the DSC Resource Kit which was released on September 5th 2018.
If you are interested in using SharePointDsc with SharePoint 2019, please use the code in the v3.0-development branch.
Improvement/Fixes in v2.5:
Updated resource to retrieve the Farm account instead of requiring it to be specifically used
Updated readme.md to specify that this resource also updates the database connection string
Fixed issue where enabling providers did not work
Added ability to check and update CentralAdministrationPort
Added High as TraceLevel, which was not included yet
Updated readme.md file to add a link that was lost during earlier updates
Updated Set method to check if service application pool exists. Resource will throw an error if it does not exist
Fixed issue where Get method threw an error when the specified service application didn’t exist yet
Fixed issue where the resource would fail is the FQDN was specified
Added ExcludeDatabases parameter for AllDatabases
Added ability to check and update QuotaTemplate, OwnerAlias and SecondaryOwnerAlias
New resource to manage site collection urls for host named site collections
Fixed issue where Get method threw an error when the realm didn’t exist yet
Fix for issue where an update conflict error was thrown when new service application was created
Added SiteNamingConflictResolution parameter to the resource
