Fix for Service Unavailable in PowerShell DSC Pull Server

Introduction

HTTP 503: Service Unavailable

I recently tried to setup a Microsoft Windows PowerShell Desired State Configuration (DSC) Pull Server, and was receiving an error from IIS. I used the xDscWebService DSC Resource, from the xPSDesiredStateConfiguration PowerShell module, to configure the DSC Pull Server. When I tried to browse to the IIS Web Service for the Pull Server, I was receiving a HTTP 503: Service Unavailable message from Internet Explorer. I believe it is important to note that the Microsoft Windows Azure Pack (WAP) is also installed on the same server where I am trying to deploy the DSC Pull Server.
