I’m new to Chef and trying to bootstrap a Windows node using knife. I’m running the following command from my workstation: knife bootstrap windows winrm .*.***.*** -x Administrator -P ******
In response, I get “Doing old-style registration with validation key at C:/ … Delete your validation key in order to use your user credentials instead.” The validation key it’s referring to is the organization validator that my workstation uses to connect to the Chef server. Why is it using this validation key to connect to the node and not the password I specify in the command? Is it because of how I have my knife.rb set up?
