Azure DSC Extension versions 2.4 up to 2.13 will retire in August

NOTE: For information on OS support, and other features, please refer to our release history.

In August, we will remove Azure DSC Extension versions 2.4 up to 2.13. These versions use WMF 5.0 PP whose signing certificates will expire in August.

These versions will continue to run on existing VMs, but you will no longer be able to install them on new VMs. Now would be a good time to start thinking about upgrading to one of the latest versions which installs WMF 5.0 RTM.

If you are using Azure Powershell SDK cmdlets, you can use the -Version parameter.

    Set-AzureVMDscExtension -Version 2.17

If you are using ARM template, update the ‘typeHandlerVersion’
