How can we improve Azure Virtual Machines?

DSC extension install without running node configuration

Installing the DSC extension should not run the node configuration.
The node configuration is likely to change over time, might not exist at the time of install or could have errors. If any of those things are true, it's the responsibility of DSC in Automations to point this out, not the extension.

The extension install should only go as far as registering with the automation account, configuring the LCM and setting the node configuration name.

This is currently causing me problems with Terraform as the initial run fails every time due to the node configurations not existing at deployment time. Even once the node configurations are in place, the extension remains at provisioning failed even though DSC is working fine.
