cDFS moving to the PowerShell Team

Just a Friday afternoon heads up – if you’re using the cDFS DSC Resource I created to manage Windows Server Distributed File System (Replication and Namespaces), it has now been accepted into the PowerShell Community resources and will be under the control of the PowerShell Team.

This means that the GitHub source code repository will be moving over to the PowerShell organization in the next few days. This also means that any future releases of this resource module won’t be provided by me as cDFS, but will be released by the PowerShell team as xDFS.

So I recommend that when this happens you switch over to using the xDFS resource. I will put another post up here when the change over officially occurs. The first official release version under the new xDFS name will be 3.0.0.x. I won’t make any further changes or bug fixes to the cDFS resources.

It is also worth noting that as part of this move some minor changes were made to the DSC Resource modules. These are breaking changes and you will most likely need to update any DSC Configurations depending on this, but you would have to do this anyway because of the name change.

The changes are:

  • Resource xDFSRepGroup renamed to xDFSReplicationGroup
  • Resource xDFSRepGroupConnection renamed to xDFSReplicationGroupConnection
  • Resource xDFSRepGroupFolder renamed to xDFSReplicationGroupFolder
  • Resource xDFSRepGroupMembership renamed to xDFSReplicationGroupMembership
  • xDFSReplicationGroupConnection:
    • Changed DisableConnection parameter to EnsureEnabled.
    • Changed DisableRDC parameter to EnsureRDCEnabled.

These changes should only require minor changes to your configuration scripts to implement.

Thanks for reading and have a great Friday~
