Hello Team,

We are facing an issue while running the Invoke-ArcGISConfiguration command on Powershell DSC.

It gives an error:-

Start-DscConfiguration : The computer name was not specified and the configuration directory does not have any configuration files.
At C:\Program Files\WindowsPowerShell\Modules\ArcGIS\3.1.1\ArcGIS.psm1:233 char:131.

I have attached the screenshot also.

Please help us out.

In the JSON file that's used to pass in the parameters to the DSC (downloaded from GitHub), was that file opened and edited or just ran as is?

Im having this same issue.

I don't see what the solution was to this.

The JSON Im using was downloaded from GitHub, Edited for my Env, and then run.

Im editing the 3 server JSON, but not the others.

Im wondering if I need to update the JSON for each server/role and then run the 3 Server JSON.

When downloading the JSON from GitHub, you need to edit the file and enter the information for your specific deployment.  The JSON files are templates only, not to be run as is.  Also make sure that the template matches the deployment pattern that you are after (single machine, multiple machine, highly available, etc.)

Hi @schulcp ,  I'm seeing the same problem now.  You're post came up when I googled.  I'd try posting to the related github project, as they're pretty quick to respond.  

 

@ReeseFacendini there is no solution here.
