DSC Resource cPowerShellPackageManagement Module Updated to Version 188.8.131.52
Back in September this year, I published a PowerShell DSC resource called cPowerSHellPackageManagement. This DSC resource allows you to manage PowerShell repositories and modules on any Windows machines running PowerShell version 5 and later. you can read more about this module from my previous post here: https://blog.tyang.org/2016/09/15/powershell-dsc-resource-for-managing-repositories-and-modules/
Couple of weeks ago my MVP buddy Alex Verkinderen had some issue using this DSC resource in Azure Automation DSC. After some investigation, I found there was a minor bug in the DSC resource. When you use this DSC resource to install modules, sometimes you may get an error like this:
Basically, it is complaining that a cmdlet from the module you are trying to install already exists. In order to fix it, I had to update the DSC resource and added –AllowClobber switch to the Install-Module cmdlet.
I have published the updated version to both PowerShell Gallery (https://www.powershellgallery.com/packages/cPowerShellPackageManagement/184.108.40.206) and GitHub (https://github.com/tyconsulting/PowerShellPackageManagementDSCResource/releases/tag/220.127.116.11)
If you are using this DSC resource at the moment, make sure you check out the update.
