This is a new bootstrap error we have not seen before. It’s happening on Server 2008 R2 machines.
Attempting to download client package using PowerShell if available... powershell.exe -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted -InputFormat None -NoProfile -NonInteractive -File C:\chef\wget.ps1 "https://www.chef.io/chef/download?p=windows&pv=2008r2&m=x86_64&DownloadContext=PowerShell&v=12" "C:\Users\BUILDE~1.COR\AppData\Local\Temp\chef-client-latest.msi" Exception calling "DownloadFile" with "2" argument(s): "The underlying connection was closed: An unexpected error occurred on a receive." At C:\chef\wget.ps1:14 char:1 $webClient.DownloadFile($remoteUrl, $localPath);
After setting the proxy server I can download the MSI using IE, but the download fails with the wget.ps1 and wget.vbs scripts.
Any ideas what’s causing this and how to resolve?
Is there an alternative way to bootstrap without using
knife bootstrap command?
