I’m new with Chef(and ruby), please excuse me if I’m just being thick.
I’m using the windows_feature provider from the windows cookbook to
install roles on a Windows 2012 server.
On W2012 however, you cannot install .Net framework 3.5 without
providing some installation sources.
So far, I work around that by using remote_directory and by shelling
out to cmd, something like:
I’d like to skip the remote_directory copy when the feature has been
installed, however, so my question is:
Is there no way to simply check if some feature/package is installed?
The provider implements the method ‘installed?’. Can I not call it
somehow from my recipes?
