NOTE: For information on OS support, and other features, please refer to our release history.
Today we released version 2.1 of the Azure DSC Extension, with a bug fix for ARM deployments.
The bug we fixed would produce this error message in some ARM deployments:
“File lock (C:\Packages\Plugins\Microsoft.Powershell.DSC\184.108.40.206\bin\..\DSCWork\ExtensionHandler.Lock.dsc) exists: another instance of the extension is already running.”
The error would occur right after reboot. If you see this error message in your deployments we recommend upgrading to version 2.1.
