Run Desired State Configuration resources as a specific user
Desired State Configuration (DSC) requires local administrator privileges to modify Windows resources. Typically, the Puppet agent runs under a user account with these permissions. However, if the Puppet agent on a node does not have local administrator permissions, you can use Hiera to configure a user account that does have the required permissions.
