Chef Client for Windows Server 2012 R2 and Windows 8.1


#1

Hi All,

I wonder what is the official support statement for Windows Server 2012 R2 and Windows 8.1? I have been running chef-client (v11.8.2 for Windows Server 2012) on my workstation machine which is Windows Server 2012 R2 and so far I have not seen any issues. I would like to setup a laptop, which runs Windows 8.1, as my workstation.

Any idea?

Thanks

Kapil, Windows Server 2012 R2 is supported. I’ve filed this ticket to make
sure the platform support is stated publicly to avoid the confusion - our
apologies: https://tickets.opscode.com/browse/CHEF-5109.

You can also see explicit references and commits that were made in Chef
tooling to support Windows Server 2012 R2:

Thanks for noting this issue Kapil.
