I too am getting that same error message in the DSC log file. The DSC service says it is "disconnected" whenever we start and restart the services or when we reboot the server. Although after about 5 or 10 minutes, the DSC server connects by itself. We have tried changing the URL for this server from the server name to the IP Address to LocalHost, but nothing seems to fix the "disconnected" issue. Does anyone know of how to fix this?
